A deliciously tart, luxuriously creamy whipped feta dip. So quick and simple to make, it’s perfect for snacking or as a condiment with a little extra kick! Everything bagel seasoning is the perfect topping to add a bit of crunch and nuttiness!
This dip pairs perfectly with this Easy Flatbread recipe!
One of my most vivid memories from a trip to Greece a few years ago was walking into a grocery store and seeing the feta. That may not sound like something to be surprised by, since Greece is known for this cheese.
The surprising thing wasn’t to find it, but to walk into the store and see a whole, huge wall of feta. I had no idea that such variety was possible, and that people could find so many ways to use it.
This is when my eyes were opened to how just how versatile this salty, tangy cheese can be. Because it carries such a flavoursome punch, it be used a huge range of ways to elevate all sorts of foods.
In this recipe, I’ve whipped feta to create a stunningly tasty dip. With a touch of lemon, garlic and everything bagel seasoning, and yoghurt for extra creaminess, its wonderfully balanced while still packing a punch!
What to serve with the dip
Because feta is loaded with flavour, this dip packs a bit of a punch. That means it is best served simply.
My person favourite pairing for this dip is vegetables. Fresh vegetables like sliced cucumbers, carrots, celery, radishes, and almost anything else you can think of will be perfect!
And of course crackers, fresh bread or any sort of warm flat bread can be used for dipping as well.
But this is so much more than a dip. It’s brilliant as part of a sandwich when used in place of mayonnaise. Or serve it alongside roasted vegetables like asparagus or zucchini.
Making whipped feta dip
This dip has to be one of the easiest things to make that I’ve come across. All you really need to do is combine all of the ingredients with the help of a food processor or blender. Or use an immersion blender like I did.
Let the machine run until everything is combined and you have a smooth, whipped texture. That’s really all it takes!
I’ve added some optional extras to make this delicious dip even more interesting. A drizzle of olive oil and dill as garnish are too good to pass up.
I also added everything bagel seasoning. This can easily be skipped if you don’t have it available, but does add a nice bit of texture to the dip. It adds a bit of crunch with a nutty, seedy flavour. Plus it just looks good!
How long will it last in the fridge?
Whipped feta actually lasts quite well when stored in a refrigerator. Make sure that the container you use is well sealed and air tight. When stored right, whipped feta can last as long as 1-2 weeks.
Stored whipped feta dip is a great option to keep in your fridge for those moments when you want a tasty snack or punchy condiment.
