This whipped feta dip with sun dried tomato is a creamy savory spread, perfect for pairing with toasted pita wedges, or spreading on sandwiches! It’s a guaranteed crowd-pleaser!

I could make an entire meal out of a yummy spread and some crispy veggies or a nice crusty bread.  After honeymooning in Greece, I have fallen in love with all the flavors of the Mediterranean!  This whipped feta dip with sun dried tomato is one of the best dips ever, and brings me right back to the islands!

Is feta cheese good for you?

Compared to other cheeses, feta cheese is low in fat and calories! It also contains a good amount of B vitamins, phosphorus and calcium, which benefits bone health.  Additionally, feta contains beneficial bacteria and fatty acids.

How do you make Whipped Feta Dip with Sun dried Tomato?

To make this creamy whipped feta dip,, you’ll need to have a hand mixer, a food processor, or something high-powered that can whip that feta cheese until it’s smooth and creamy. The Feta is whipped together with cream cheese, Greek yogurt, lemon juice, olive oil and sun dried tomato paste. The olive oil helps to lighten everything and make a fluffy dip. It takes several minutes to get a smooth dip, but it’s all worth it in the end! Scrape down the sides of the bowl a couple of times between pulses.

Once the Feta Cheese is whipped to a consistency you like, add a little salt and some crushed red pepper flakes to season, then add fresh dill. Feta is a pretty salty cheese, so you’ll want to be cautious adding salt.

To finish it off, place in a shallow serving bowl and top this Greek Feta Dip with some diced cucumbers and tomatoes for texture and crunch, and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. I like to dice up a whole cucumber or two and stir it right into the dip for added texture as well. Make sure to have plenty of pita chips or plain crackers on hand for serving.

What do I serve with Whipped Feta Dip with Sun Dried Tomato?

This tangy spread is perfect on some warmed naan or pita bread, or paired with some crisp fresh veggies. It’s a great addition to a charcuterie board, or you can also spread it on some grilled chicken make a meal out of it!

    Love love love this!! So simple and a fun, different snack. Set it out with some gluten free crackers, carrots and cucumber slices and it was a hit! Looking forward to making this again the next time we have company although I’d happily eat an entire batch myself!
