    I'm sorry to report that this dip was a dud at my party last night. I made it exactly as called for, and it's just not very good. I used fresh Peppadew peppers from Central Market in Houston, fresh Feta cheese and cream cheese – but it left me – and my guests – less than thrilled.

    I've made this recipe many times for many parties and it's ALWAYS a hit! Serve with raw veggies and crackers.
