Lemon Feta Dip

by Amy D

Creamy dreamy Lemon Feta Dip is bright and lemony, cheesy and zippy with a hint of red pepper spice. It’s perfect for dipping pita chips and crudites.

This recipe truly was a happy accident. I have a habit of buying in bulk when fresh fruits and vegetables are on sale and this creamy dip was the result of a bowl full of lemons and avocados that I experimented with.

Cheese lovers, this is not your typical cheese dip.

Feta cheese takes on a truly decadent texture when it’s whipped with mayo and avocado. Unfortunately for you avocado lovers, the avocado flavor is pretty much drowned out by the other more flavorful ingredients in this recipe, like the lemon and garlic. Adding the avocado does fulfill a very important role though in giving the dip it’s wonderful creamy texture and allowing us to cut back on the mayo a bit.

Making lemon feta dip

  1. Zest and then juice your lemon.  Coarsely chop the avocado. 
  2. Put all the ingredients in the food processor, reserving a few crumbles of feta cheese to sprinkle over the top later. All the ingredients are added to the food processor.
  3. Whiz it in the food processor until it’s well combined. The dip after it's been blended in the food processor.
  4. Spread the dip evenly in a bowl or serving plate. A bowl of lemon feta dip sitting next to half an avocado and lemon.

What goes with whipped feta dip?

Serve this dip with pita chips or fresh veggies. It also makes a great spread for fresh pitas! Spread it on a pita along with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, red onion, and chicken for an easy and delicious entree.

This dip is the lightest and creamiest the day that it is made. It will stay good in the fridge for several days though. Before serving, stir well and drizzle with olive oil and crushed red pepper.
