Traca: This is a riff on an Ina Garten recipe I've made before.. I liked the concept, but not her version of whipped feta (it was too tart/overpowering). This version is spot on. For the tomato mixture, I added chopped garlic (a la Ina.)

Whipped Feta & Tomato Crostini

Whipped Feta Spread:

6 ounces feta

4 ounces cream cheese, softened

3 Tbsp olive oil

1 lemon, juiced

Tomato Topping:

½ onion, finely chopped

2 Tbsp red wine vinegar

2 pounds cherry tomatoes

2 Tbsp olive oil

1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped

Salt and pepper

Crostini:

1 baguette cut 1/2" slices

Olive oil

Instructions:

Chop the cherry tomatoes into quarters. Combine with the onion, basil, red wine vinegar, and olive oil. You can season with salt and pepper if you like.

Combine the feta, cream cheese, olive oil, lemon juice, and salt & pepper in a food processor. Mix until creamy.

Brush both sides of the baguette slices with olive oil, and bake them on a cookie sheet at 400F until they start browning.

Spread the whipped feta mixture generously on top of the baguette slices. Top with the tomato mixture and serve.
