Very easy to make, crunchy, salty, sweet and delicious basil whipped feta filled phyllo dough shells with cherry tomatoes and roasted mini peppers.

Hello, how is your weekend going so far? I am just popping in really quick to share a very easy and delicious appetizer with you. These basil whipped feta in crunchy mini phyllo dough shells topped with cherry tomatoes or roasted mini peppers are the perfect little bites.

Basil Whipped Feta I debated a lot if I want to share this recipe, because I wasn’t in love with the photos, I took them so quick since we were ready to gobble down these basil whipped feta tartlets. At the end I decided to narrow it down to a few photos that I kind of like and share the recipe with all of you, since it so easy to put together and it tastes amazing, crunchy, salty, sweet and fabulous.

Basil Whipped Feta The combination of salty creamy feta with a touch of basil is perfect with the juicy and sweet cherry tomatoes. The roasted mini peppers become sweet and tender and pair perfectly with the basil whipped feta and crunchy mini phyllo dough shells. The texture of this appetizer is so good, it tastes like summer, but I love that it can be made and enjoyed anytime!
