Feta Dip with Fresh Herbs & Lemon

Feta Dip with Fresh Herbs and Lemon via The Tasty Fork

It seems like ages ago, but before Christmas, I went to a Holiday Theme Pinterest Party. Being a total pinning addict, this was such a fun party! Everyone made something to share and the recipes had to come from one of your pin boards.

I asked for help from my readers about their favorite party food pins. My friend, Maddie, gave me a great recipe from one of her pin boards. She said it’s always a huge hit anytime she’s made it. It’s super easy, no cooking required and it’s transportable.

I did make a couple changes to the recipe. I used reduced fat feta cheese (you can’t taste the difference!), replaced dried herbs with fresh oregano, parsley & basil and topped the dip with fresh lemon juice.

The dip was a huge hit! It was almost like a Greek style bruschetta since we ate it with bread. It’s definitely something I’ll be making again!!

Feta Dip with Fresh Herbs & Lemon

  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1lb Reduced fat feta cheese (buy it in a block, not crumbles)
  • 3 -4 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 10 Green onions, chopped
  • 2 tbsp Parsley, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Oregano, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Basil, chopped
  • Red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 baguette, sliced

Directions

  1. In a large platter, pour olive oil. (it should cover the bottom of the platter.)
  2. Crumble feta cheese over platter. Add tomatoes, green onions and herbs. Mix everything together.
  3. Taste. Add red pepper flakes, salt & pepper.
  4. Top dip with lemon juice.
  5. Serve with bread. I bought a french bread baguette from the bakery section at my local grocery store and that was perfect with this dip!

    Great, simple idea—and it’s all my favorite things that I usually toss with quinoa. I bet it’s especially good with the homemade feta I can get at the market. :)
