Roasted Red Pepper and Feta Spread

You wouldn’t know that I’m not terribly crazy about roasted red peppers from the look of this blog. I personally find them a bit bland but others seem to be crazy about their mild notes. Michael Psilakis recommends this Roasted Red Pepper and Feta Spread to slather on lamb burgers and dip with pita bread. It is understated but tasty. If you like roasted red peppers, I advise you try it. Although I will be making tzatziki again next time. I like the extra kick!
