Appetizers, also referred to as meze, are a big part of Greek cuisine. These dishes can all be combined together to form one big meal, or they also make for easy, simple snacks. This Greek style cheese dip is an example of something you can serve.

It tastes great with wedges of bread, crackers, and even vegetable sticks. You can use any type of Greek cheese that you have on hand, especially feta, which tastes especially great with this recipe.
