Feta Dip

This Feta Dip is something that you can make in minutes and serve immediately for guests. I love to toast up some Naan bread in the oven with olive oil and a sprinkle of salt for dipping! You can also use Pita Chips, crackers, crusty bread, or vegetables!

Do you have fresh garden cucumbers? That is another favorite for serving with this dip.

How to Make it

*See recipe card below this post for ingredient quantities and full instructions.

  • Add softened cream cheese to a food processor and blend until smooth.
  • Add Feta cheese, plain Greek yogurt, garlic cloves, dill, oregano, and lemon juice and blend until combined.
  • Serve immediately or store in the fridge until ready to serve.
  • To serve warm, bake in a covered baking dish at 350° for 25 minutes.

Substitute for Plain Greek Yogurt

If you find yourself in need of a Greek Yogurt substitute, I would recommend using equal amounts of one of the following:

  • Sour cream. This would be my first choice, I make this substitution often.
  • Mayo can also be used.
  • Cottage Cheese is another alternative, the consistency won’t be quite the same but it’ll have great flavor.

Storage:

  • Store in a covered airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

What To Serve With Feta Dip

  • Toasted Naan bread, crusty French bread, crackers, pita chips, and vegetables are perfect with this dip. (Sliced cucumbers are particularly refreshing with this dip.)

  1. I would love to try this but I’m not a fan of Greek yogurt. What else can you substitute it with?

  2. Hi, how far in advance can this be made and still taste good? Thank you! 

    • Hi Meredith! You can make it several days ahead of time and it will taste super flavorful and fresh, if you’re using fresh ingredients, this can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a month!

  3. I made this today for the Super Bowl. I took half and added carmelized onion. Oh my – delicious!

  4. Could I use a blender? I don’t have a food processor?

  5. Just made this recipe and it is divine! I like to slip something new to dinners each week. Going to serve this with veggies tonight and will also use and make a Greek pizza later this week….DELIGHTFULLY DELICIOUS!!

    • HI Faith!!!! I am SO happy to hear that you loved this as much as I do, I was so pleasantly surprised when I made it for the first time!! Having it with veggies is amazing and I LOVE your Greek Pizza idea!!!! Can I uh, come over for dinner? (Hehe!!)

  6. Made this last night for my stepdad’s 75th birthday party…it was a huge hit! Delicious and easy to make. I forgot to add the tomatoes before serving with everything else going on, so next time I’ll try to remember, but even without them the dip was great! We served it alongside chips, crackers, and crudite, it was yummy with all of them. Thank you very much for the recipe 🙂

    • Hi Sara! This totally made my day, I’m sooo happy that you loved this dip. I was soooo pleasantly surprised when I tried it for the first time, I knew it’d be good, but not THAT good!

  8. OMG this sounds amazinnnggg. I’ve been avoiding making more of our own feta cheese until after our baby is born (I have no idea how to pasterize homemade cheese!) and now I know what the first thing I’m making with it is!!! Eeee can’t wait until your little nugget is here!!! xoxoxoxo

  9. M-m-m. I think I’ll try this with a soft-poached egg on top for a yummy, yummy breakfast!

    • Hi Patty! Ohhhhhhh that is A GREAT idea!!! I was trying to think of what dishes this would be good with, and poached eggs sound PERFECT! (I’ve been on a HUGE egg kick lately anyway so it sounds extra delicious)- Enjoy!!! 🙂
