This creamy feta dip is a quick and easy appetizer you can serve over anything: tortillas, pita chips, fresh pita bread, sliced baguette, you name it! It’s refreshing, and the creamy texture blends so well with anything crispy! Feel free to add more toppings to the whipped feta dip and show your creativity to your guests! We like to serve the feta dip drizzled with more olive oil and a sprinkle of za’atar, pepper, crushed red pepper flakes, chives, and toasted sesame seeds.

Ingredients for the whipped feta dip

  • Feta cheese: Better use a block of feta because feta crumbles tend to be drier – just make sure it’s well drained and at room temperature. Otherwise, it won’t mix easily.
  • Ricotta: Same as with feta. Room temp makes the ricotta SO smooth when whipping! 
  • Sour cream: Sour cream rounds up the texture profile and adds a refreshing touch.
  • Garlic clove: Fried garlic in olive oil makes this whipped feta dip so special! Plus, it brings a nice crispy touch!
  • Olive Oil: Olive oil infused with garlic and spices helps blend the creamy feta dip.
  • Lemon juice: You’ll love how fresh it makes the feta dip taste!
  • Za’atar: For a great Mediterranean flavor.
  • Toasted sesame seeds: for a nice crunch and a smoky flavor.
  • Red chili pepper flakes: If you like a subtle kick of heat, go for it!

Directions

1. To make the whipped feta dip: Add feta, ricotta, and sour cream to a food processor. Season with salt and pepper and blend on high until smooth, about 2-3 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.

2. In a saucepan, heat olive oil over medium-low. Add minced garlic and sauté over low heat until soft. Turn off the heat. Stir in lemon juice, za’atar, sesame seeds, and chili flakes.

3. Add the garlic, olive oil, and lemon mixture to the whipped feta and stir well until smooth. Top with chives and serve the whipped feta dip with corn tortillas, pita chips, naan, or a veggie platter. Enjoy! ❤️

Tips for the feta dip recipe

  • Ensure the cheeses and sour cream are at room temperature for a smoother blending. You can refrigerate the feta dip afterward before serving if you like.
  • Make a sweet and salty feta dip by adding a swirl of honey and mint. 

What to serve with the whipped feta dip

If you want to know how to enjoy this healthy whipped feta dip, then we have some ideas for you:

  • Bread: A crostini, toasted baguette slices, or sourdough bread taste amazing with the feta dip! Baked pita chips or tortillas are also excellent options.
  • Crackers: You can never go wrong with some good crackers and this creamy dip recipe!
  • Vegetables: Try dipping some vegetable sticks in this feta dip appetizer! We love any veggies, but favorites are carrots, celery sticks, and cauliflower florets.

What kind of feta is best for the whipped feta dip?

We prefer using a whole block of feta in brine for this dip. The brine keeps the feta cheese moist, making it easier to blend with a nice creamy texture. Feta crumbles tend to be drier, but will also work.

How to store the whipped feta dip

Keep any whipped feta dip leftover in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Transfer the feta dip to a bowl and whip it with a spatula to lighten the texture. You can use the feta dip leftovers as a spread on your wraps and sandwiches!
