In my humble opinion, picnics are ubiquitous with summer & no al fresco dining experience is complete without crisp, crunchy vegetables & an accompanying dip. Here’s one of our favorites. A simplified version of Greek Ktipiti, this recipe combines the briny tang of fresh feta with the sweet, slightly smokey undernote of roasted red bell peppers. Cutting the traditional heat allows the flavor of an accompanying crudités to shine through, although you could always jazz things up with a dash of hot sauce or pinch of red chili flakes.
