This whipped feta with lemon and fresh dill is just really amazing on crackers, bread or vegetables.  I made it for a dinner party last week and it was the hit of the party.  I was lucky enough to get some fresh dill from our farm share and fresh feta from some local goats.  What I love the best about this whipped feta is the coolness of the dill blended with the saltiness of the feta and the tanginess of the garlic and lemon.  A fantastic dip that should be eaten up in no time at all (you might want to make a double batch for parties).

Whipped Feta in Minutes

This recipe is very easy to make and all you need are the ingredients and a food processor (although a blender would probably work in a pinch).  Take the cheeses out a half an hour early or just take them out as you prep the other ingredients.   Add everything except for the cheeses to the feta and process until everything is finely chopped.  Then add the cheeses and blend until smooth.  That’s it!  Whipped feta in no time at all.

For a party, you could serve it with celery sticks or alongside carrots, olives and crackers.

One of my favorite ways to use whipped feta is toasting some thin slices of french bread, topping it with the feta and then drizzling some nice local honey on top.  This makes for a sweet and salty appetizer and a great finger food.

If you have some leftovers use it in an omelet for breakfast along with sautéed spinach and caramelized onions.  You could also make an avocado toast with whipped feta and chopped red onions.

Let me know if you come up with any creative whipped feta recipes.

    This is very refreshing, but unless this is calorie count breakdown is for the whole batch this calorie count is way beyond healthy!!!

      Hi Konstantina,
      That calorie count was for the whole batch. We have changed it and I think you will find it much more to your liking now! -Bill

    My family and I enjoyed this dip. I used Dodoni brand feta, which I think is superior to others. Try it, you’ll love it!

    Can I make this dip the night before? Thanks

    • Bill Bradley, R.D. November 30, 2019 at 12:04 am - Reply

      Yes, it works well the night before. Just take out of the fridge an hour or so before you serve.

      It’ll probably taste even better (next day)!

    Hi I am new at this and 79 years of age. I need this to get healthy and to stay healthy. My only concern is I may not be able to get all of the ingredients needed to eat this way and will it be really easy for me to do? I hardly cook anymore so my husband and I go out to eat which is expensive and not good for us.

    Please help me to get started with very easy and fast recipes. I already bought the greek oilve oil so that is a start . I am going to try the Whipped Feta with lemon and fresh dill.

    I hope that I am not a person who cannot do this. Thank you so much

    Can I make this the night before

    • Bill Bradley, R.D. November 30, 2019 at 12:06 am - Reply

      Yes, just take it out of the fridge a little before you serve so it will be soft.

    • Bill Bradley, R.D. December 14, 2019 at 5:37 am - Reply

      Yes, this would be great the next day. You just might want to take it out of the fridge a half hour before serving.
