How to make Whipped Feta

Whipped feta is an easy-to-make dip, spread, and pasta topper!

Whipped Feta Dip

This is just one of those recipes that seems to fit. I’ve served this to my book group and to friends with crackers and veggies, slathered it on toast and burgers. Besides being quick and easy, it looks simple, yet elegant. Plus it’s a great way to use feta that you have on hand. Which is why I made this recipe, I had feta I needed to use. But it’s so good that I added feta to the grocery list.

Whipped Feta recipe

This is a super simple recipe that is blended in the food processor. The goal is to make it smooth and fluffy. The Greek yogurt bumps up the protein and thins out the dip which adds to the creaminess.

Break up the cheese with the yogurt. Then drizzle the olive oil in so it doesn’t pool up in the bottom of the work bowl as you run the food processor.

Why I like feta cheese

Tangy and salty it delivers a zesty punch to recipes. Like most cheeses, it provides calcium and protein. For those who are salt sensitive, sodium is on the higher side for feta, so a dab may do ya’.

lt’s lower in fat and calories than many cheeses which makes it a go-to ingredient for me. Feta is usually a side note to many recipes, but with whipped feta it’s the star!

How to store feta

Feta keeps for up to a month in the fridge. If your feta is packaged in liquid, keep the liquid. This is a brine which flavors the cheese. Just keep it covered. No brine? No problem. Not all feta is packed in brine. Keep it covered in the fridge. If you see mold, time to toss it. You can freeze feta but it will be crumbly when it thaws. This whipped feat is an excellent way to use it!
