Kopanisti

SHARE THIS POST:

I can’t believe the Super Bowl is on Sunday. It doesn’t even feel like it. We’re already one month done with 2013. Seriously, the older you get, faster time goes. It’s sad but that just gives you all the more reason to live it up, right?!

I must say that I ended the year of being 25 with a bang. I still cannot believe what happened earlier this week (I know, you’re probably thinking, “when is she going to shut up about it?”) and I still cannot believe all that I’ve accomplished in a year. It’s nice to reflect every now and then on your accomplishments. I think you kind of have to otherwise you just get really deflated. You need a mental boost and what better than to take a look back at your accomplishments? We were talking about this at work yesterday and while it doesn’t seem like you do a lot, when you actually write it all down and it’s in front of you, you’re like WOW.

So this is my last Super Bowl dip for the week. I’ll have a huge round-up tomorrow of ALL the dips/apps featured this week, INCLUDING all the other snacks/dips/apps on my blog within that round-up, so stay tuned!

This dip – I can’t ever say the name of it correctly the first time – but nevermind the name, let’s talk about how I’ve never even heard of this dip before until I saw it on Gaby’s blog. It looked and sounded so good. I’m all for anything Greek and with the roasted peppers thrown in – I’m there! It’s basically a whipped feta dip but omgosh, so brilliant.

My tastebuds exploded when I had my first taste. It’s creamy, cheesy, and salty and full of FLAVOR. You guys, you must try this if you’ve never had before. It’s PERFECT with pita chips and your game day buddies will love you for introducing them to a unique dip that they can literally whip up in 3 minutes! The 13-cup KA food processor works MARVELOUSLY to help whip this up for you ;)

    Ha…I have also never heard of Kopanisti until now. It looks and sounds super yummy thought. Feta+roasted peppers+garlic? What about it could possibly not make your taste buds rejoice.

    YES!! I had this dip at a Greek restaurant once and was in LOVE, but could never remember the name of it! This is definitely it… and I will be making it soon! Thanks so much for posting the recipe.

    YUM omg this sounds so good. I ate at this amazing Greek restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale and the feta dip was out of this world. I seriously could have licked the plate clean.. Adding red peppers into the mix would have made it even better. I haveeee to make this!

  4. 02/01/2013 at 8:18 am

    Yum– can’t wait to try :)

  5. 02/01/2013 at 9:10 am

    This is my favorite kind of food!! I could eat the entire bowl!!!

  6. 02/01/2013 at 9:13 am

    This sounds amazingly delicious & flavourful – can’t wait to try it!

  7. 02/01/2013 at 9:29 am

    I’ve actually tried dips like this and I agree they are to die for good! I can’t wait to try this!

  8. 02/01/2013 at 12:29 pm

    Me, Betsy and Heather were talking about Kopanisti this weekend – okay now I HAVE to make it! And drink wine. Duh. :)

  9. 02/01/2013 at 12:41 pm

    I love all dips, even when I cannot pronounce the name, at all. ;)Hope you’re well.

  10. 02/01/2013 at 1:10 pm

    It doesn’t even matter that I can’t pronounce it because my mouth will be too full while eating it. I’m kind of a pig when it comes to dips, it’s embarrassing.

  11. 02/01/2013 at 1:21 pm

    I am so intrigued! I must action this dip immediately! And cheers to you on a fantastic week! Girl, the sky is the limit for you!

  12. 02/01/2013 at 1:39 pm

    This looks sooo good! So many choices of dips to make for my Superbowl Party!

  13. 02/01/2013 at 2:23 pm

    Yum! This sounds a lot like the Baked Feta dip I can’t stop making since I got back from my trip to Greece this Fall. I roughly follow the recipe on this blog post http://cretanchronicles.wordpress.com/2012/09/05/my-big-fat-greek-food-blog/?like=1&_wpnonce=474fc3311b but leave out the olives, add oregano and bake the whole thing in the oven until it is bubbly and delicious.

  14. 02/01/2013 at 3:00 pm

    Creamy cheesy salty and no tomatoes – I’m in!

  15. 02/01/2013 at 3:21 pm

    I think I just found what I’m going to make on game day! Thanks! I was looking for something simple!!

  16. 02/01/2013 at 7:00 pm

    We love Greek food. I never realized that Kopanisti could be made so easily. Thanks for the recipe!

  17. 02/01/2013 at 9:42 pm

    There’s a restaurant in San Jose, CA called Thea that has a pita/dip sampler with this in it and I ALWAYS finish most of it on my own. I’m so excited to be able to make it for myself!

  18. 02/01/2013 at 10:12 pm

    I love this dip! Any excuse to eat more pita chips is a good one :).

  19. 02/02/2013 at 9:07 am

    OH my stars! I need this!

    Holy smokes! Just made it & tasted it! Amazing!!! Thanks!

  21. 02/03/2013 at 4:31 pm

    I never knew this was an official thing! I’ve been making the same with the sweet addition of sweet potatoes–delectable!

  22. 02/04/2013 at 2:39 pm

    I cant get over that bright orange color! So pretty and I can only imagine how amazing it tastes :)

    I made this as the recipe states, I believe a little less roasted peppers works, 3 instead of 4 or else it has a strong taste that overcomes the feta taste.
