Fresh Feta Dip – Appetizer Made With Cucumbers And Kalamata Olives

Growing up in Astoria, Queens I must admit that I have a true affection for Greek food – particularly dip recipes.  I don’t start a holiday function without some sort of spread on my table. It’s just the way I was raised. 

What makes this feta cheese dip so special is the amount of time it takes to pull it all together – a matter of minutes. The hardest part is truly meshing the cream cheese and the feta together. After you get over that hump, it’s all smooth sailing. 

And when I said “hard”, I mean not hard at all. A little elbow grease and the back of a spoon is all you need. If you have three minutes, you can muster up what it takes to make this Greek feta dip as an appetizer. And yes, your friends will thank you. 

I love to serve dips with crispy and crunchy pita chips – make sure you have some on hand because nothing goes better!

How To Make Fresh Feta Dip Recipe

combine cream cheese and feta

Combine the feta and the softened cream cheese with your olive oil using the back of your spoon until the mixture is set. The entire dip should get together.

Add the remaining ingredients and combine once again. When I make this dish, I like to top the dip with some additional herbs, olives, and sundried tomatoes – just to provide a little more color. That is up to you. 

Transfer the mixture to a colorful bowl and serve with pita chips. Enjoy!

Do I Need Salt And Pepper?

I know usually, recipes call for salt and pepper but I have to be honest here – everything that we use is pretty salty. You could add a little pepper if you want, but I would avoid any salt. Taste everything before you decide. I think this recipe doesn’t need any. 

I Want To Add Peppers To This Cheese Dip Recipe

I say this with every recipe on my blog – if you want to omit, replace, or add an ingredient on my list… please do!

My husband was standing next to me as I made this recipe and he suggested that I add green peppers to the feta dip. I told him that I didn’t want to because I thought that the flavors wouldn’t go.

He said that if he was making it, that’s what he would do. I told him the next time he made the recipe, to go ahead and add it in! The beauty of cooking! Customize and curate to your tastes!
