Swingin’ Summer Saturday’s and Sunday’s – Extended Edition Some Favorite Recipes

TGIF!

Sorry for the late post but I stayed up to watch Mitt Romney’s speech last night.  Plus my sinus’ indicate the remains of Issac are on the way.  So between the two, I am a moving a little slow today.  But at least I am moving!

Michele and Rommie’s Labor Day Weekend Plans

Rommie and I are going to be reading, writing and doing research this weekend.

So I am going to finish off the Swingin’ Summer Saturday’s and Sunday’s with a few of my favorite recipes I’ve published since starting this blog.

Recipe #1

Today’s recipe was published last December during the “40 Days of Joy” series.  It is not only a great dip but a good source of fiber.

I will be making it this weekend.

 

Feta, Beans & Champagne – Oh My!

JT’s Easy Dip Recipe

(from the kitchen of JT O'Donnell)

Ingredients

  • Two small cans of white beans.
  • One bottle of Girard’s Champagne Vinaigrette Salad Dressing. (Available at Marc’s if you live in Ohio)
  • A container of crumbled feta cheese.

Directions 

  • Drain cans of beans completely (no liquid) and then puree the white beans in a blender.
  • Slowly add the Girard’s dressing (about 1/2 bottle) until its smooth and creamy.
  • Fold in the 1/2 have container of feta cheese.
  • Pour dip in a bowl.
  • Sprinkle remaining feta cheese on top.
  • Shake a few dashes of your favorite spices (basil, paprika) on top for color.
  • Serve with pita chips!

Michele’s Notes

I made the dip this afternoon.  It is easy and yummy!  You cannot go wrong fixing this for your holiday get togethers.

I used Navy beans since there were no cans labeled “white” beans.  After mentioning this to JT, I found out the beans are Cannellini.

Also I topped it with Tastefully Simple’s “Spinach and Herb” dip mix for color.
