Pecan Dill Gremolata

  • ½ cup pecans, toasted and chopped
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • ½ lemon, zested
  • ½ tsp kosher salt

Feta Dip

  • 12 oz crumbled feta cheese
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • pinch of kosher salt, if needed
  • grilled bread, for serving


Pecan Dill Gremolata

1. In a small bowl, combine the toasted pecans, sliced green onion, parsley, dill, lemon zest, and salt.

2. Stir well and set aside.

Feta Dip

1. Add the feta cheese to a food processor, along with 2 tablespoons of the water, the lemon juice, and olive oil. Pulse until combined.

2. Continue to run the food processor, adding the remaining 2 tablespoons of water, until the feta dip is smooth and creamy.

3. Taste the dip and add a pinch of salt if you’d like (the feta will already make the dip salty).

4. Top the dip with the pecan dill gremolata and serve with grilled bread.
