Whipped Feta Dip

Okay, I am here to tell you right now that you MUST TRY this dip!! I don’t have enough words to tell you just how good this is. You just need to try it yourself! If you love the taste of feta cheese then this dip is for you! It takes feta cheese to the next level and it is perfect for dipping with a Crostini, this yummy bruschetta, or sliced pita bread!

Not only does this dip taste like a little slice of heaven but it’s SO easy to make. I’m talking 5 minutes and it’s done! Which is amazing! Except for the fact that I think that then I make it too often… Is that a thing? The feta cheese mixed with garlic, lemon zest, and red pepper flakes really make this a stand-out dip! Go ahead and give it a try. In fact, you might want to double it. I promise that you won’t regret it!

Ingredients in Whipped Feta Dip

Okay, I know that this list of ingredients isn’t stuff that you would normally put together but trust me!! It tastes SO GOOD! See the recipe card at the end of the post for exact measurements.

  • Feta cheese: You can used crumbled or a block!
  • Cream cheese: If you take the time to set this out 30 minutes before then it will mix up SO smooth!  
  • Garlic cloves: If you don’t have fresh cloves then you can use minced garlic! 1/2 teaspoon equals about 1 clove of garlic.
  • Olive Oil: This helps blend everything together.
  • Lemon juice and zest: If you use a fresh lemon, you will never go back! I love how fresh it makes this taste!
  • Salt: The salt really brings out the flavor of all of the other ingredients!
  • Pepper: A tiny bit of pepper makes all the difference. You don’t need much!
  • Red pepper flakes: This brings in the BEST flavor without any heat!

    I halved this recipe to bring as an app for a dinner get together and it was delicious! So easy to make and usually always have these ingredients on hand. Everyone loved it so this will be a staple in my recipe rotation.

  2. This is a great appetizer and every time I make it, dinner guests rave. I only wish the pop-up ads weren’t so frequent. It really deters from spending any time on the site.

    1. Hi Mary! Thanks for trying the recipe and also thank you for your feedback! I’m always looking to optimize!

  3. 5 stars
    This was so simple and amazing. We used a feta with “Mediterranean herbs” and my 7 year old son nearly ate the whole bowl himself.

  4. I tried this recipe and it was easy. I found that adding the salt in the recipe made it too salty. I added a full lemon and more garlic and it was perfect!
    Everyone loved the dip!

      For some reason the poster does not wish to tell us the top seasonings. This is most likely because the photo is not of her actual creation. She probably doesn’t know exactly what they are.

        She actually previously commented that is was paprika and fresh parsley, as well as EVOO. I personally use EVOO and Aleppo pepper, and parsley if I happen to have some. I think the pepper flavor is good, but smoked paprika would probably be good too.

    1. Whipped feta dip is great for making ahead! It will stay good in the fridge for a week as long as it’s in an airtight container or covered with plastic wrap.

  5. 5 stars
    This is a great recipe to use as a base to use and then customize to your own taste! I didn’t add the salt just because my feta had enough in it. I put some caramelized onion and dill in mine. WARNING: do not over blend in the food processor (this is a “me” problem…) it turned to liquid. I was making a double batch, so I saved it by making the second batch in my stand mixer which left everything chunky, then hand folded the liquidy half in.

  6. 5 stars
    Absolutely delicious!! Made it according to the recipe the first time, the next few times I used flavored cream cheeses, and each and every time it is absolutely delicious.
