Whipped feta dip

I love serving this creamy whipped feta dip at parties and gatherings because it always surprises people. It looks like any other creamy white dip, maybe a ranch-y sort of thing made with cream cheese or sour cream. But it tastes like something else entirely. Lemon gives it zing, garlic adds bite, and the feta fills it with a delicious salty tang. Set it out with pita and veggies, and I promise, it’ll disappear in minutes.

Another reason I love this whipped feta dip recipe? It’s SO easy to make. You just need 5 ingredients, 5 minutes, and a food processor. Trust me, you want it in your back pocket!

Whipped Feta Dip Ingredients

BIG TIP for this recipe: Better feta yields a better feta dip. Instead of buying crumbled feta, which often contains extra ingredients to prevent caking, look for a block of feta cheese. It’ll give the dip a creamier texture and a richer, brinier flavor. It makes such a difference!

Here’s what else you’ll need to make this recipe:

  • Greek yogurt – Whole milk, please! It helps the feta whip into a rich and creamy dip.
  • Extra-virgin olive oil – It smooths the dip and adds fruity depth of flavor.
  • Fresh lemon juice – For brightness.
  • And garlic – For a savory bite.

How to Serve Whipped Feta Dip

I love to serve this whipped feta as part of a mezze platter or charcuterie board with pita bread, pita chips, and/or fresh veggies for dipping. I always dress it up with a few garnishes before setting it out. Here are some of my favorite combinations:

  • A drizzle of olive oil, pinches of Aleppo pepper, and chopped parsley. I love how the yellow, red, and green pop against the white dip.
  • Olive oil and dukkah or za’atar. These spice blends add earthy, aromatic notes to the dip.
  • A swirl of honey, freshly cracked black pepper, and mint. A fun sweet and salty combo!

If you have leftover whipped feta dip, you have plenty of options for using it up.

    Is this recipe better with greek yogurt or cream cheese? Ive seen recipes that either use one or the other and not sure which is best!

      I like Greek yogurt in this recipe, it’s fresh and I think cream cheese would be too rich along with the feta.

    This looks delicious. I plan on making as part of your mezze platter. Can you make the feta dip ahead?

      Yes! I store it in the fridge up to about 5 days. If it separates at all, just give it a stir.

      Hi Linda, I’m not sure about the calories, but there aren’t any carbs in these ingredients (except in the pita, of course).

    great idea for a dip, especially since my idea of feta conjures up a solid square shape! Little hard to dip into that, so thank you

    Super easy and delicious! I’ve had it with eggs, crackers, veggies as well as roasted cauliflower. Also by the spoon. Thanks for this!
