- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
- Crumble and mash feta cheese with a fork with oils and lemon juice until smooth and creamy.

Many herbs and spices can be added to this recipe for a "kick". Try adding a teaspoon of dill, oregano, garlic powder, or another herb or spice. For spicier spices like cumin or caraway, start off with 1/8 teaspoon and increase according to taste.
