Why You'll Love this Whipped Feta Recipe

You're going to enjoy all the ways you can use this dip! It's both a great spread or appetizer with Mediterranean flavors.

Feta is having a real moment right now with all the feta pasta recipes going around. It's a great, brined cheese that has so much tangy and salty flavor. It's a cheese that most people enjoy eating, so this would be a great recipe to take to a potluck or picnic to share with others.

Ingredients You'll Need

Feta - You'll need 8 ounces (1/2 pound) of feta cheese. You can buy it as a block or use crumbles - either will work since you'll be blending it.

Yogurt - You'll need 7 ounces of Greek yogurt. I used lower fat yogurt, but feel free to use whichever one you'd like.

Olive Oil - You'll use 1 tablespoon of olive oil in the dip and if you'd like, you can top the dip with another tablespoon or two of olive oil.

Spices - You'll need 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt and 1/4 teaspoon of sumac for this recipe.

Pine Nuts - You'll use 3 tablespoons of toasted pine nuts to top the dip.

Herbs - This is optional, but you can top the dip with 2 tablespoons of chopped parsley. You could also use dill, oregano, or chives as well.
