This is best feta dip ever. It is so tangy and salty and completely addictive. People often comment that they would like to lick the bowl. Great on pitas, used as a dip, or alongside souvlaki.

  • Transfer dip to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate at least 1 hour.

Cook's Note:

Use whatever feta cheese you prefer, but I've found creamy Greek or Macedonian feta to work best.

Love this dip! I used smoked paprika and traded ground red pepper for cayenne to keep the heat down for kids. I tried to use less olive oil but the texture was off. You need the full 1/2 cup. Read More

Salty and tangy. Next time I will add way more cayenne for extra spice (wasn't super spicy) and more paprika for extra colour. Read More

Turned out great! Simple and easy use with feta. I used Greek yogurt and not a true measure - resulted in nearly 2 cups but I added a little more feta etc. Read More

Really good. It came out silky smooth in the food processor which I love. I added a few sundried tomatoes since I was out of garlic (added dried). Nice flavor. Salty but okay. Read More

I made a 1/3 recipe because I only had 6 oz of feta but I just ate half of it myself.... I added a bit extra garlic and used quite a bit extra Kashmiri chili powder (closest I can get to paprika) to make it spicy. Delicious! I ate it with veggies and a spoon by the end:) Read More

My crowd liked it. I cut the recipe in half because I had a small processor and added extra olive oil to thin it. Will make again but with my full size processor to really smooth it out. Read More
