Feta cheese

Bruschetta Lentil Dip

Bruschetta Lentil Dip

Bruschetta Lentil Dip with feta cheese is yummy, healthy, and super easy to make!  When I first tried this dip, Cynthia made it for a Groundhog Day party.  Recently, I also tried it at the Trader Joe’s sample station.  It is a perfect potluck dip, so I had to make it!

It makes a big batch, which is great for a larger crowd.

Ingredients:

1 container of your favorite bruschetta

1 lb. of steamed lentils (Trader Joe’s has them ready to go in their deli/salad section)

8 ozs feta cheese, cut into cubes

Crackers or tortilla chips

In a large bowl, mix the bruschetta and lentils.  Gently toss in the feta cubes.  They will fall apart slightly, but that’s okay.  Serve with crackers or tortilla chips.  Done!  You’re ready for potluck time!

Spinach Strawberry Salad

Spinach Strawberry Salad

The combination of feta, strawberries, red onion, and walnuts make this an easy, delicious, and refreshing salad that is always loved at potlucks!

The first time I tried this salad, Aleigh made it with candied walnuts.  However, you can use regular walnuts or pecans, too. The key to this recipe is the Brianna’s Blush Wine Vinaigrette that she uses.

Thank you, Aleigh, for sharing this recipe!

Ingredients:

Bag of spinach, washed and ready to eat

Strawberries, sliced

Feta cheese, crumbled

Red onion, sliced

Walnut or pecan pieces, broken (you can also use candied walnuts or pecans)

Brianna’s Blush Wine Vinaigrette (the one with the big strawberry on the front of the bottle)

Put the spinach leaves in a large bowl.  Layer with strawberries, feta cheese, red onion, and nuts.  Add the vinaigrette and toss right before serving.
