ingredients to make whipped feta dip

Ingredients

See recipe card below this post for ingredient quantities and full instructions.

  • Feta cheese – Get a block of feta, not the pre-crumbled kind.
  • Greek yogurt – Use plain Greek yogurt; you can use 0% for a lighter whipped feta dip or whole milk Greek yogurt for a richer texture.
  • Lemon
  • Garlic – A garlic press is perfect for mincing the garlic so no one gets a big chunk in their dip!
  • Salt
  • Black pepper

For the garnish:

  • Sun-dried tomatoes
  • Fresh basil
  • Red pepper flakes – You can skip these for a milder dip, or replace them with freshly cracked black pepper.
  • Olive oil – Use a high-quality extra-virgin olive oil with a fruity aroma and flavor.

Variations

  • Add chopped fresh herbs like parsley, oregano, dill, or chives
  • Swap out the feta cheese for goat cheese for a different flavor. 
  • Use roasted red peppers instead of sun-dried tomatoes.
  • Instead of olive oil, drizzle honey over the top before serving.
  • Sprinkle sumac onto the dip; this is the “red stuff” you’ll see on hummus at Mediterranean restaurants.
