If you need a party appetizer that is lovely, fresh, light and delicious, you must make this Junior League Feta Black Bean Party Dip; it is outstanding.
One of my absolute favorite appetizers to serve in Spring & Summer is this Junior League Feta Black Bean Party Dip. It is perfect for warmer months, as it is light, fresh, and lovely in a bowl. It just looks and tastes like Spring, Summer and entertaining.
My friend Jean Anne served this dip at a lovely outdoor tennis party several years ago, and everyone raved over it! She served it with Fritos scoops, and it was SO delicious~salty, slightly sweet, crunchy, and tangy.
The recipe for this dip is found in A Thyme to Celebrate, a cookbook of the Junior League of Tallahassee, Florida. I love junior league cookbooks and am always on the lookout for new ones. This one is an oldie but a goody and can be purchased for less than $10 (used) on amazon. This is a favorite way that I add cookbooks to my collection~buying used.
Make Ahead: This dip is best if made several hours before serving, as it needs a bit of time for the flavors to blend and for it to chill. It tastes great the next day, so leftovers are yummy as well.
Cook’s Note: For corn, I use Green Giant steam crisp super sweet white (canned). The white kernels look so fresh, and their taste is delicate and sweet. My favorite feta brands are Athenos, Boar’s Head, and President’s~all recommended in Cook’s Illustrated Taste Tests.
