Spicy Feta Cheese Dip

Rated as 4.78 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. Combine olive oil, yogurt, lemon juice, paprika, garlic, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and sugar in a food processor; pulse mixture until smooth. Add a couple feta cubes at a time, processing between batches until mixture until thick and smooth.
  2. 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.

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.

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...

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.
