  1. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook another 2 minutes. Allow the mixture to cool slightly.
  2. In a blender, combine the feta, vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, olives, oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt, some pepper and the onion mixture. Blend until smooth.
