Whipped Feta Dip


I’ve had this whipped feta dip at a restaurant we love in Nashville. It’s delicious and one of those really memorable dishes that you order every single time without question. It’s sweet and salty, creamy, and totally unique.

I was shocked to learn how incredibly easy this recipe is to make at home. You can easily whip it up in under 20 minutes, and it’s perfect to make ahead for a party.

It will surely become a repeat when we are hosting friends and family and I hope it will for you as well. This is the perfect recipe to pair with a fancy charcuterie or cheese board.

FAQ

Can this dip be made ahead of time?

Yes. You can make this dip a few hours or even the night before a party. Just cover and refrigerate the dip until you are ready to serve. The dip tastes great served cold with warmed bread.

Can I substitute or omit the almonds?

Customize this dip slightly with things you have on hand. You could use different kinds of nuts. I do think having them chopped small and toasted is worth the effort.

Could you make this spicy?

Yes. Add some red pepper flakes sprinkled to the top to add a little kick.
