Sara and I are off again! I promise you guys, my kids, my husband, myself, and an OB-GYN who thinks I’m a tiny bit crazy that we’re not going anywhere else (and by we, I mean my growing fetus and I–Sara’s anniversary is coming up) until I go to the hospital to have this baby. Except for a possible trip to Ikea because I need bookshelves. And cinnamon rolls.

I wanted something fun and easy and delicious for this Friday–I’m not sure everyone’s feeling pushed to the limit, but it seems like everyone I know is feeling pushed to the limit (who knew elementary school, preschool, 4-year-old dance class, and 7-year-old soccer could drive us all to a crazy place?). What do we all need? Besides a good spin class (okay, maybe not ALL of us) and a Xanax? Bacon. Always bacon.

For this dip, whisk together 1 1/2 cups high-quality plain Greek yogurt and 1/2 cup mayonnaise.

Stir in 1 cup crumbled feta cheese, 12 ounces cooked, crumbled bacon,

1 clove minced garlic, 1/4 cup finely minced green onion, 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil, 1 tablespoon lemon juice,

and 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar. Add black pepper and then season with kosher salt to taste. Cut 8 ounces of tomatoes in half and then rinse under cool water to remove the seeds and membranes.

Dice the tomatoes, then spread the dip into a serving dish

and then sprinkle with chopped tomatoes. Garnish with additional basil if desired. Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving, then serve with crackers, chips, pita chips, and/or slices of warm bread.

    Favorite part of the recipe? “not Miracle Whip” Mayo lover/Miracle Whip hater that I am, for some reason that made me giggle.

    Have a fabulous trip! Hugs to the TOFW crew from me!

    If I were you my camera would be filthy dirty taking pictures while doing slicing, dicing and mixing. Although I may be the messiest cook in the world.

    Mmmmmm Bacon.

    You had me at bacon. Yes please! I gave my 14-month-old daughter bacon for the first time the other day. She started shaking her high chair so violently (for more) that I thought she was going to injure herself. Although I doubt that would be the first injury ever induced by a need for more bacon.

    This sounds amazing! I’m always looking for new ways to jazz up dips–and this one sounds great. YUM.

    When I read this recipe on Friday I was having a hard time picturing what it would taste like. But tonight I noticed the picture with the tomatoes and realized that this is a BLT on chips and now I’m totally on board! It sounds like a perfect dip for a summer barbeque.

    Made this for my girlfriends and they all loved it! I served it with soft pita bread wedges. I may throw in some deseeded, diced cucumber next time.

    I love your little cup that measures liquid tablespoon – where can I find one? I just googled it but didn’t have any luck finding one. Thanks!
