Herbed Cheese Spread

8 ounces feta cheese
8 ounces cream cheese - softened
2 tablespoons sour cream
1 clove garlic
Fresh chives - cut in 3 inch pieces
Fresh basil leaves - chopped
Fresh parsley - chopped
Fresh thyme - chopped
Fresh dill weed - chopped

Crumble feta cheese into bowl of food processor with chopping blade intact. Mash garlic clove with flat edge of knife or in garlic press and add to processor bowl. Add herbs, according to your taste. To substitute dried herbs, start with approximately 1/2 teaspoon basil, 1 tbsp. each of chives and parsley, and 1/4 teaspoon each thyme and dill. Add more of any herb, if you wish. Process just until herbs are chopped. Add cream cheese and sour cream; process until desired consistency, adding more sour cream for a softer spread.

Serve with crackers or raw veggies.

Serving Size: 12. Makes about one pint

NOTES : Excellent for stuffing raw vegetables (celery, cherry tomatoes and pepper wedges) for a quick hors d'oeuvre. Or serve with crackers, or toast rounds, mini bagel chips.
