What is Whipped Feta?

I recently ate this dish at a restaurant and fell so deeply in love I knew I had to create an at-home version to share with you!

Whipped feta is a creamy cheese dip with lots of tart and salty feta cheese!

With its pretty presentation, this chilled dip is served with warm with roasted tomatoes on top! It’s perfect for dipping crostini into! If possible, don’t skip the fresh dill, it’s so good on this!

Ingredients/Variations

CHEESE
Feta and cream cheese are mixed together with sour cream to create this rich, creamy dip! Some brands tend to be extra salty so give your feta a good rinse before starting.

TOMATOES
Cherry tomatoes are seasoned and roasted until soft. Grape tomatoes or even small cocktail tomatoes will work great too!

VARIATIONS
Whipped feta can be customized to create a different flavor profile! Try mixing with honey for a sweeter taste, or add lemon for a zesty, tart flavor! Chopped scallions or chives add a dash of color & punch!

How to Make Whipped Feta

It’s one of the easiest and most satisfying dips to make because it just comes out so incredibly creamy and tasty!

  1. Process feta, then add other dairy ingredients, whipping until creamy. Refrigerate the mixture to allow it to thicken.
  2. Roast tomatoes with seasonings (per the recipe below).
  3. Top with roasted tomatoes & serve with warm pita wedges or crostini.

Tips for Perfect Whipped Feta

  • Brands of feta can vary greatly both in texture and in salt content. Try different brands until you find a favorite.
  • This dip is salty, the addition of Greek yogurt (or sour cream) and cream cheese round it out a bit. You can adjust the amounts to your liking.
  • I like to top it with the warm tomatoes but honey & fresh thyme is another favorite.
  • It’s best not to freeze whipped feta. Dairy is never at it’s best after defrosting, and roasted veggies are sure to lose some of their flavor and texture as well. But the good news is that this dip can definitely be made ahead and chilled, so that it’s ready to go when you are.

Whipped feta can be served with veggies for dipping, pretzel bites, seed crackers, or toasted pumpernickel or French bread.

  • Whipped feta keeps in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. It may last even longer if the topping is stored separately!
  • Feel free to microwave the tomato topping until just warm, or roast it again in the oven to enhance the flavors.
