Sun-dried Tomato and Feta Dip with Za’atar Chips #SundaySupper

Sun-dried Tomato and Feta Dip is perfect for tailgating at home with your favorite sports team or weekend entertaining this fall.  Pair this dip with my favorite chip of homemade Za’atar Chips!

Well it’s September, so that means only one thing.  Nope not the changing of the beautiful weather or pumpkin spicing of all the things.

Football is back.

I mean, I guess it’s great if you’re a big fan.  For me though? I’d rather just eat the food and ignore what’s going on in the background.    Now I know I can’t be the only one out there with a complete disinterest in this sport.  I blame it all on the forced games I had to attend back in high school thanks to marching band.   It’s hard to truly appreciate a game when you are forced into the ugly uniform that is a marching band outfit.

I digress though, we aren’t talking about marching band or really football for that matter.  The truth is, Sunday afternoons at home or rather tailgating on your home turf is all about the food.

In my opinion the best part of tailgating food has got to be the dips.  I just can’t stay away from them, and I felt like this was the perfect opportunity to through some of my favorite Mediterranean flavors into an irresistible and brightly colored dip.  Briny feta, intense tomato flavor and just a touch of tang from some greek yogurt to smooth everything out.     It’s perfectly accompanied by a glass of wine.

Oh yes, that’s right, wine does belong that the tailgating table and Gallo Family Vineyards has planned ahead right with you with their awesome mini wine bottles! Instead of bringing a pack of beer to share with your friends, bring a 4-pack of these guys to the party! Perfectly portioned for one serving – so three other folks can have one too – with 9 varietals, there is a wine for everyone.

Plus I say, do away with the glass and just put a straw in your mini-bottle.  It gets a little girly with my White Zinfandel here but I don’t mind one bit!

    It’s time to break out the jar of zaatar I’ve never opened! What a terrific dip and chip combo!

    P.S. Your cookies are amazing! And I can’t wait to try the vanilla salt. You’re the BEST!!!

    You went to the wrong high school – we had beautiful powder blue uniforms with matching powder blue shakos (that was back about a hundred years ago, but I still remember them fondly).

    The dip sounds great, and the chips… What can I say? Pita smeared with olive oil and sprinkled za’atar and then toasted is one of my all-time favorite things to eat. I think I might have to make this!

      I did go to the wrong high school! Although my school was more about the football team than the marching band. Our colors were royal blue and gold with that horrid gold stripe across the shirt, a gold plume on the hat and a matching dickey!
