You are going to love this delicious whipped feta dip! It makes for a delicious appetizer, served with some toasted bread and sliced veggies, or used as a spread on toast or sandwiches.
It's made with feta and Greek yogurt, making for a creamy but lighter dip. You can top this recipe with all sorts of seeds, nuts, or herbs, but I'll show you my favorite ideas.
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 (½ 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 ½ teaspoon of sea salt and ¼ 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.
