Garlic Feta Cheese Dip

by Aggies Kitchen on October 17, 2010

Have you ever fallen in love with food?  I fell in love with this dip a few years ago when my foodie sister in law Paula prepared it for us at for my son’s birthday party.  I couldn’t get enough of it.  We served it with pretzel crisps and it was a match made in heaven.

For whatever reason, it has been quite a bit of time since I last made this!  I thought of it the other day when I was trying to put together a third dish to serve on a bruschetta bar that I was bringing to my friend Betsy’s get together at her house.  I used light cream cheese and light mayo for the base, but made sure to use good feta.  Instead of pretzel crisps, this time it was served shmeared on parmesan bread crisps (scored at the Publix bakery – saved me some work!) alone or topped with tomato and basil or roasted peppers.  It was a perfect trio of yummies!

oh my deliciousness. Feta alone is so good. I’ve never had a feta dip! Beautiful. Publix has so many great products. I bet the whole spread was a hit!

Sounds great! I love the tangy flavor in feta, I bet worked perfectly with the peppers.

Cajun Chef Ryan October 19, 2010 at 7:00 am

Aggie, this is one great dip for sure! The cream cheese, feta, and garlic, but I would most likely increase the garlic to at least four cloves myself! Cannot get enough gaaahhhhlic!!!

Great dip, full of flavors. I agree with Cajun Chef Ryan, I am a lover of gaaaahhhhlic. :)

ooh I love the look of this! I like it thicker!

what are your thoughts? Would it be yum with fat-free feta, light cream cheese and fat-free mayo?


Susan October 19, 2010 at 3:16 pm

Wow! This looks so delicious! I love the idea of pairing it with roasted red peppers! We’re having company this weekend and this will be a perfect starter with a nice glass of wine! So glad I popped into your kitchen!


Gree October 19, 2010 at 9:39 pm

Yum! That dip looks so fabulous I could reach through the screen and eat it, I am going to have to make that very soon. I have actually never made a dip with feta..I wonder why because I love it so!

That looks INCREDIBLE. I love both feta and garlic, and your pictures are so pretty!

That looks fabulous. With New Year’s coming up, I’ll be looking for some great dips and this looks GREAT!


Brendan Carroll February 12, 2011 at 2:03 pm

Excellent recipe. This dip is also delicious with warm pita bread.


Cuthbert May 2, 2011 at 3:25 pm

Oh ok can anyone tell me if this dip is any good? Much obliged


Rosemarie June 8, 2011 at 8:35 pm

Thank you for this recipe! It is wonderful. Made it for Easter and I just made it again tonight – delicious!!!!


Elaura August 16, 2011 at 1:02 am

Made this dip for a Scentsy party and it was fantastic! Doubled the recipe because I knew I would want to have extra for lunches this week :) I served it with plain ole pretzels and fresh veggies. YUM!


Kel November 27, 2011 at 11:29 am

This look GREAT. However, I’m not a fan of mayo on any level…yucko. I was thinking of trying this either without it or adding sour cream instead? Has anybody tried this change? I’ll let you know how it goes.


josey March 30, 2012 at 11:57 pm

Does anyone know how long this will keep? Such a wonderful delicious recipe!


Aggies Kitchen March 31, 2012 at 9:43 am

Hi Josey!! I am not really sure on how long something like would this would keep…3-5 days maybe? maybe longer if it lasts? Its pretty awesome isn’t it, I might need to make it again for snacking on Easter! :) Thanks so much for the comment!


JenObie November 30, 2012 at 4:51 pm

Oh my. Feta and garlic. dip. (or spread I’m thinking, by adjusting mayo). Picture this. Spread it on toasted anything (fat pitas, toasted wheat, rye, whatever sliced bread, naan, etc), then top it with quick simply marinated chopped tomatoes. Thanks for finding this and sharing.
