This is a wonderfully delicious and very easy to make dip which your guests will savor! Not only will your guests savor the dip you may have to call a foul as they crowd the dip dish edging each other out for more… it is that delish! The Best Feta Dip will not disappoint the feta cheese fans in your life or at your party.
But be forewarned this dip does taste…. like Feta! It is a nice way to introduce Feta cheese to those uninitiated, but if a guest does not like Feta it is always nice to put out a little verbal feta alert.
The Best Feta Dip Is Versatile
I’ve provided a version of 1/2 of the recipe below as a little Feta can go along way and this portion is a great trial portion if you have never made the dip before. You can experiment with the amount of lemon zest and juice for your palate as feta and lemon are strong flavors. I’ve used oregano, dill or parsley as garnish – but only one!
Did I mention versatile? Pita chips, toasted crackers and veggie all pair fabulously with this dip. The feta cheese lovers in your life will profusely thank you and ask for the recipe.
