Recipe of the Day: Feta-Mint Dip with Yogurt

this is a great appetizer or dip to put out when entertaining. and, its easy to make. just pop most of it into a food processor and you're all set!

Feta-Mint Dip with Yogurt
makes 1 1/4 cups

1 cup plain whole milk yogurt
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 1/2 oz feta cheese, crumbled (about 1/2 cup)
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
2 medium scallions, roughly chopped
2 tsp lemon juice

1. place yogurt in fine mesh strainer or cheese cloth-lined colander set over bowl. cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 8 to 24 hours; discard liquid in bowl below. this should leave you with a very, very thick yogurt consistency.
2. process all ingredients in food processor until smooth and creamy, about 30 seconds. Transfer dip to serving bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until flavors are blended, at least 1 hour. serve cold with crudites.

* can be refrigerated in airtight container for up to 2 days
