Feta cheese – I recommend a block feta cheese for this recipe. You can also substitute the blocks of feta for goat cheese or ricotta as desired.
Greek yogurt – Choose a plain greek yogurt for this recipe, or swap out for sour cream.
Cream cheese – Replace with sour cream or Greek yogurt as necessary.
Garlic – I recommend mincing your own garlic clove, but you can also buy pre-minced or switch out for garlic powder as needed.
Lemon juice – Fresh lemon juice is best, but you can use bottled.
Lemon zest – Swap out for some extra lemon juice if you don’t have zest.
Olive oil – Substitute tablespoon of olive oil with butter if you need to.
Fresh dill – If you can’t find fresh dill, you can also use tarragon.
Red pepper flakes – Replace with chili flakes or red chili peppers if you don’t have red pepper flakes.
How to Make Greek Feta Dip

How Can I Store Leftover Greek Feta Dip?
For this dish, the easiest way to store leftovers for the next day is to place them in an airtight container and store them in the fridge. You can keep this dip for up to 3 days.
What Should I Top My Feta Dip With?
You can use a number of different toppings for this dip, and I recommend using anything that would come in a greek salad, since this dish has a lot of the same flavors.
I typically go for cucumbers and cherry tomatoes, but you can also use olives, pepperoncini, or chickpeas. Drain away any excess liquid and pat with paper towels before adding.
If you like acidity or want a thinner dip, you can also add a splash of red wine vinegar or white wine vinegar and give your dip a good stir.
Tapas Tips & Tricks
- For a spicy greek feta dip, try adding some hot peppers to your greek seasoning. You can also add some spicy cheese at the same as your block feta for an extra kick of flavor. Spicy feta dip is one of my favorite variations of this dish!
- Crumbled feta is ok but it will be slightly drier than the block variety.
- Try out different things for topping your dip, like green onions, sesame seeds, or chopped pepper. Everyone has different tastes, so you may want new toppings!
- Before serving, add some black pepper and a pinch of salt to your dip for some added seasoning.
- Forgot to leave your cream cheese out to soften? You can transfer it into a microwave safe container and heat it in 20 second intervals until it reaches the desired consistency.
- For an extremely smooth consistency, try using a food processor or immersion blender to mix your ingredients into a paste.
