I enjoy foods with strong flavors, but this recipe is an unfortunate combination of piquancy. The mixture of raw garlic cloves, feta cheese and Kalamata olives nets an end product that I do not care for. Nevertheless you can save this from being a disaster if you 1) add the juice of 1/2 lemon, and 2) add 1 can drained garbanzo beans. Puree together with the rest of the ingredients in the food processor. This will change the dish into a cheesy hummus, which is tasty. However, the red pepper is still overwhelmed, and I would suggest using only 1/2 packet of the onion soup mix, otherwise your dish will be too salty. The fact that the recipe holds such a strong flavor even after the addition of 15 oz. of garbanzo beans gives you some idea of how pungent these components are when combined. It will be some time before I try this again.
