Ktipiti (Greek: χτυπητή),[needs IPA] also known as Tirokafteri in some regions (Greek: τυροκαυτερή),[needs IPA] is a cheese spread from Greece.[1] The preparation of the dish may vary from region to region, but ingredients most commonly include feta cheese (sometimes combined with one or more other types of soft, white cheeses), hot peppers (such as red cherry pepper), roasted peppers, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, yogurt, or oregano.[2] It is commonly eaten as part of a mezze platter, or by itself, with slices of warm pita bread. The dish has a spicy, salty taste, with mellow undertones of olive oil.[citation needed]
