Notes

Recipe Notes:
If at all possible, use a feta cheese that has been packed in brine. Good sources for finding feta packed in brine include Trader Joe's, cheese specialty stores and middle eastern markets
The dip can be made several days in advance and stored in a covered container in the refrigerator. Let the dip come to room temperature before serving. 
I used jarred, roasted red peppers in this dip recipe, but if you have fresh peppers, you definitely can roast them and use them in this dip!
