This layered dip boasts all of the fresh flavors of the Mediterranean. The whipped feta base, combined with briny Olivada Pesto and bright Mint & Pistachio Pesto, come together to make the most flavorful appetizer or first course.



12 ounces sheep's milk feta cheese
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1 lemon, juice and zest
1 teaspoon Bella Cucina Wild Oregano & Sage Salt, divided
1/4 cup Bella Cucina Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 jar Bella Cucina Marinated Chickpeas, drained
1/2 English cucumber, diced
3 ounces Bella Cucina Olivada Pesto
3 ounces Bella Cucina Mint & Pistachio Pesto
1 package Bella Cucina Pane Rustico Flatbread, to serve
Fresh mint, to garnish


In a food processor, blend feta, yogurt, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and lemon juice and zest to mix. Slowly stream Bella Cucina Extra Virgin Olive Oil and blend until smooth.

In a mixing bowl, toss drained chickpeas with diced cucumber. Season with remaining salt.

To assemble dip, spread Bella Cucina Olivada Pesto in a semicircle on a large serving platter. Inside the semicircle, spread whipped feta into a circle with an indentation in the center. Top with chickpea salad and Bella Cucina Mint & Pistachio Pesto.

Garnish with fresh mint leaves and a drizzle of Bella Cucina Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
