Whipped Herb Feta πŸ’š This recipe is inspired by my last trip to NYC. I ate the best whipped feta with pistachios and this is my dupe! You know I love feta, and pistachios, so when I had this… I just knew I had to make it. Perfect for when you are having people over, I can say with certainty that it will be a crowd pleaser.
