This was a REALLY good dip for pita bread & pita chips, especially after sitting for an hour, so that flavors could meld. It would also be excellent as a sandwich spread. I used a mini food processor to get a creamy smooth texture, which I preferred to the small curds version. I tried it 3 ways: as written; with 1/3 less butter, and with yogurt instead of butter. The yogurt version's consistency was more liquid & lacked the rich taste of butter. It was still VERY good in its own right though. An excellent & healthy alternative for those who want/need to reduce butter consumption. The other 2 ways were so similar in taste & texture, that I'd make this again with only half the butter. We tasted it as recipe was written; all of us really liked the fresh herby taste. Later I added more cilantro & jalapeno for stronger flavor. I agree with Josephine that this could accompany a Greek meal, or any Middle Eastern meal, for that matter (especially if yogurt is used for some or all of the butter).

And the winner is... This is so different from what I susally make, my guests were pleasantly surprised. I reduced the amount of butter I used because of health reasons. That's the only change I made. We are definitely dill fans and the dill flavor was very refreshing. I don't do hot, so I made two versions. One as written with a mild amount of minced jalapeno pepper and the second dish had only a slight amount. Since more of the spicier version was eaten, I think my guests may have perferred the spicier one. I put the spread in the center of my Lazy Susan and around it I placed triangles and other shapes of a variety of very flavorful breads. I used Dill Rye, Sundried tomato & Basil bread, Smoked Swiss cheese bread. I had bread sticks, pita triangles, and several kinds of crackers. The spread has almost a summery, back yard taste. This certainly is a keeper for our family.

I made this with "Peppy's Pita Bread" and it was DELICIOUS! The taste was very refreshing for a warm spring day. My husband bought large curd cottage cheese so I had to add milk to make it less chuncky. Also, I only used 1/4 jalapeno because 4 and 1 year old were eating it too. Lastly, I added a squirt of lemon. Wonderful dish! Although its not Greek, I think this would be a lovely addition to my Greek themed meals. Thank you Traci B for sharing such a unique recipe. ***UPDATE*** Next time I'll try this with "Syrian Bread."
