Feta, Honey & Date Spread

This was very yummy, although very sweet. A bit less honey could be used with good results, if you would prefer less sweetness. It really is more of a dump it on the bread deal, and not a spread. Or, it could be an eat it with a spoon sort of thing. Not that I would know anything about that sort of behavior.

Feta, Honey & Date Spread

1 cup crumbled reduced fat feta (4 ounces)
1/2 cup sliced almonds, chopped
1/2 cup pitted dates, chopped
1/2 tablespoons dried marjoram
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped green olives
splash of lemon juice
1/4 cup honey
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

In a serving bowl gently stir together feta, almonds, dates, olives, and lemon peel. In a small bowl combine honey and cayenne. Warm in microwave for 15 seconds. Drizzle over spread; fold gently to combine.

I served it on toasted bread rounds.

Modified from the original BHG recipe.
