This easy, healthy, and delicious whipped feta dip will soon become a favorite for you. It has for me! Salty feta with lemon and garlic, infused with flavor from fresh basil and olive oil, all whipped up into a creamy dip for whole grain breads (try pita wedges!) or fresh veggies.

I was especially pleased with how this simple recipe paired with sugar snap pea pods and sliced fresh cucumber for a savory snack or accompaniment to something like a Grazer’s Lunch or Low Carb Lunch Kit.

I can’t wait to try this with Low Carb Pretzels and Jim’s Authentic French Baguettes (though not at the same time.)

NOTE: Cow’s milk feta holds up here better than sheep’s milk feta.

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp bottled minced garlic
  • 8 oz feta cheese cow's milk variety

  1. We tried this last night and I could not get my husband away from it! It was a hit for sure. I tried it as a snack today and it was just as good if not better. This is going to be something that we will make again especially when we have people over as the perfect party dip! I did make it with fresh garlic instead of the garlic in a jar.
