One of the best things about this easy whipped feta dip recipe is that it only takes a couple minutes to make. In fact, you’ll probably spend more time taking stuff out of the packaging than actually whipping the dip.

Whipped feta is kind of a richer version of your classic Greek tzatziki. In fact, if you have a favorite tzatziki recipe, just replace the cucumber for feta and it’s basically the same thing!

How To Make The Best Whipped Feta Dip

Since this is a dip, feel free to adjust the levels of seasonings to your preference. If you like something more or less, it is okay to change it. Of course, I do suggest taste testing as you add the ingredients.

Ingredients

250 grams Feta Cheese – if real feta is hard to find, you can substitute it with salad cheese. I know Greeks might scoff, but you’re adding so many other ingredients to this dip there’s really no point in preserving the integrity of a high quality feta.

250 grams Greek Yogurt – get a natural version, you want the full fat as low fat versions tend to add extra sugar which makes the final whipped feta dip unbalanced.

2 Shallots – finely diced

1 Lemon – juiced

2 tbsp Green Onion – chopped

2 tbsp Parsley – chopped

1 tsp Dry Oregano

1 tsp Garlic Powder

Salt – to taste. I only use about a quarter teaspoon. To be clear, I don’t really think this dish needs salt as the cheese itself is quite salty, so try the dip before adding salt since you don’t want to oversalt.

1 tsp Capers – for garnish

1/2 tsp Sumac – optional, for garnish

Add all the ingredients except the capers and sumac to the bowl of a stand mixer and run the whisk attachment for about a minute until you get a light and fluffy whipped feta dip. Use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides if needed. Taste for seasonings and adjust as needed.

What To Serve With Whipped Feta Dip?

There are so many things you can serve with a homemade whipped feta dip. Some of my personal favorites are:

Fresh Baguette

Crackers

Croutons – I used grenki which are fried rye croutons. I actually think they paired very well with this whipped feta!

Slices of Fresh Cucumber
