A creamy feta cheese dip with extra-virgin olive oil, feta cheese, cream cheese, garlic, fresh lemon zest, and red chili flakes.
We all need quick and easy appetizers we can throw together in no time at all when you are hosting a party or bring an appetizer to a potluck. This feta cheese dip takes about 5 minutes to whip up and you are done! It couldn't be easier. If you love the flavor of feta cheese, this is the dip for you!
Since the Super Bowl is coming up on Sunday, I want to share some slam dunk dips for you to serve. This is perfect to pair with hummus dip. All you need is a side of freshly cut veggies like carrots and cucumbers and some soft warm pita bread triangles are you are in business!
This Mediterranean Creamy Feta Cheese Dip starts off with feta cheese, softened cream cheese, and a touch of mayonnaise. Then extra-virgin olive oil is drizzled in along with garlic, spices, and fresh lemon zest. The lemon zest adds a burst of freshness to the dip.
This Creamy Feta Dip can also be served alongside grilled chicken (check out my amazing chicken marinade recipe here) and with grilled or roasted vegetables.
How to make a Creamy Feta Dip:
- Start off by whipping together feta cheese, softened cream cheese, and mayonnaise. Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature or softened to ensure it blends well with other ingredients. It needs to whip for at least 4 minutes until light and fluffy. This is an important step to create a creamy texture.
- Drizzle in extra-virgin olive oil, finely minced garlic, spices, and fresh lemon zest. I like to use a zester to ensure I only get the lemon skin of the lemon and not the bitter white part. Add more EVOO if desired, depending on desired consistency. It can also be made a little spicy by adding more red chili pepper flakes.
- Let chill until ready to serve. Serve with carrots, cucumbers, red peppers, cauliflower, and pita bread triangles. I like to warm my pita bread so it is extra soft.
