This recipe is written with the idea that you could make this dip sauce at home. Or at a camp site, boat or holiday home. With less technical tools and utensils at hand. I would prefer to use a pestle and mortar. Or a blender to bash some feta cheese, an egg and a bunch of fresh herbs. However when you are outdoors. You will have to make do. With just a fork and a plate. Either way this dip sauce is your friend. With potatoes, tortilla chips, a grilled steak or toast
