Serves: Party Size
Yield: 20 – 30
In a small food processor fitted with a blade, combine all but 2 tablespoons of the Frigo® Crumbled Feta Cheese, cream cheese, zest of 1 lemon, and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and mix until smooth. Add parsley, mint, and a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper. Pulse until just incorporated. Taste and adjust seasoning. Add this Frigo® Crumbled Feta Cheese mixture to a piping bag and cut a small opening at the tip.
Fill the piquanté peppers with a pinch of cut cucumbers and then pipe the Frigo® Crumbled Feta Cheese mixture to fill the peppers. Garnish the peppers with the remaining Frigo® Crumbled Feta Cheese, a sprig of parsley, pinch of chives, sprinkle of celery seed and/or a slice of Sweety Drop Peppers.
Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
Rad Trick: Top with extra feta crumbles and broil by placing stuffed piquanté peppers on a foil-lined baking sheet and broil until cheese melts and lightly browns, about 5 minutes.
Rad Tip: Piquanté peppers are mildly spiced with a sweet heat. Look for them packaged in jars near the pickles or in your grocer’s deli olive bar.
