Lemon and garlic whipped feta is a fresh and robust appetizer dip. Feta cheese blended until smooth an creamy and infused with flavors and fresh lemon and garlic, this goes best with crunchy crackers or thick pita!
8 oz feta cheese
6 oz sour cream
1 garlic clove, grated
2 and 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1/8 teaspoon pepper Extra virgin olive oil
1. In a food processor, blend the feta and sour cream until very fine and smooth. Then add the lemon juice, lemon zest, grated garlic and pepper and blend until smooth. You can serve immediately, or chill in the fridge until you’re ready to eat. In the photo, I was able to get those pillowy dollops because I chilled in the fridge until I was ready to take the photo and then spooned it into the bowl in layers.
2. Serve on a plate and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and with crackers, bread sticks, bread, pita, or naan.
This recipe was updated to reduce the amount of sour cream from 8oz to 6oz to help the dip stay firm.
