Greek Feta Dip


This tasty dip was brought to a Christmas gathering my friend hosted. It was so good I just had to have the recipe. Thanks Pat for bringing this great dip and sharing the recipe with the rest of us. You can lighten it up using light cream cheese and the Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream.
  • 1-8oz package of cream cheese
  • 1 cup of feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup of sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
  • pepper and dried oregano according to personal taste
  • cucumber, diced 
  • red onion, diced 
  • tomatoes, diced 
  • colorful peppers, diced
  • Kalamata Olives, diced
  1. Combine the first 4 ingredients in a mixer and mix until smooth and creamy.
  2. Spread onto a platter.
  3. Top with the chopped vegetables and olives
  4. Sprinkle with more oregano, dried or fresh.
  5. Serve with pita or tortilla chips.

  2. Goodness, my lunch suddenly seems blah. I have pita crisps in my pantry waiting for a partner. A truly fresh idea for the snacking/dipping season upon us. Thanks Charlotte!

    Blessings to All,

    1. I am sorry, I just don't have any good suggestions for a replacement for olives. I guess you can just omit them.

    2. As a keen cook, from Greece!, I would recommend substituting the olives with capers or pomegranate seeds, if you don't want to omit them altogether. Looks great, by the way ;-)

  7. I make a similar dip with herbed cream cheese as the bottom layer and then a layer of your favorite hummus. pile the other goodies on top with the feta crumbled on top as well. always popular at gatherings instead of the Mexican layered dip.
