Garlic Feta Dip

I'm a firm believer in a sweet and savory balance. Every gathering or party I throw I always try to have a balance of sweet and savory. I'm the girl that likes to order a milkshake with fries or eat potato chips and M&M's and I don't think I'm the only one!

I feel like there are endless possibilities for the sweet side of things: cookies, bars, cakes, pies, candies, donuts, breads, ice creams, sorbets.....I mean seriously the list goes on and on!

But for the savory-I usually struggle with finding easy but delicious recipes that serve a crowd. I feel like dips are always a hit because they can be served with vegetables and chips or crackers. But the options seem to be: queso, cheese ball, spinach dip, onion dip, artichoke dip and that's usually the same rotation. (Don't get me wrong-I love all those!) But I wanted something new for a baby shower I helped host last week.

I found this dip on Pinterest and tweaked it to make it perfect. It has bold flavors of feta and garlic and isn't like any other dip I've eaten!

I hope you like it as much as I did! (and my husband. and all my friends.)

1 block cream cheese (8 ounces), softened*
2 cloves fresh minced garlic
1 teaspoon dill
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon parsley
