How To Make Greek Feta Protein Dip
Ingredients You'll Need For This Recipe:
- Plain Greek yogurt
- A tub of whipped cream cheese
- Crumbled feta cheese
- A lemon
- Fresh dill weed
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Dried oregano (can also use fresh)
- Cherry or Roma tomatoes
- Kalamata olives
- Salt and pepper
This Greek dip and sandwich spread recipe is super easy to make. You can whip this up in less than 10 minutes! All you need is a good knife and cutting board (for chopping herbs and tomatoes), a juicer and Microplane grating tool (for the zest), and a hand-held mixer or stand mixer for whipping it up. I'll link to a couple of my favorite products at the bottom of the post for juicing and zesting. They are essentials in my kitchen and I use them ALL THE TIME. The Microplane is great for so many things, including grating hard cheeses, nutmeg, citrus, etc.
After zesting and juicing the lemon, set aside 1 teaspoon zest and 2 tablespoon of juice. Chop tomatoes and dill and set aside. Add all ingredients, except olives and tomatoes, into the bowl of a stand mixer or in a large mixing bowl for a hand-held mixer. Blend until mixed but some chunkier pieces of feta remain. Pour into a serving bowl and top with tomatoes, olives, and extra fresh dill weed.
My favorite things to serve with this dip:
- Pita chips
- Cucumbers, sliced into rounds
- Red peppers, sliced into strips
- Celery, sliced
- Naan bread
- Sliced pita bread
The flavor profile of this creamy protein dip makes it great with so many things! My favorite accompaniments are freshly sliced veggies and pita chips.

My husband was making a sandwich wrap for lunch and decided to use this dip for the sandwich spread. He said that it took his deli wrap to a whole new level, so we discovered that this feta dip is amazing as a sandwich spread! Imagine how good a gyro sandwich or wrap would be with a generous spread of this yogurt dip. I'm seriously craving one right now!
I also love this feta dip as a dipping sauce for grilled chicken and steak. Imagine how good it would be on a lamb burger. I'm definitely trying that next!

It's great for zesting, finely grating hard cheeses, and grating chocolate and nutmeg for drinks and recipes. I also love this small, hand-held, juicer that doesn't take up much space in the cabinet.
