Simple Ingredients, Bold Flavor

  • Feta Cheese – Use a block of salty feta cheese, not pre-crumbled feta for the best taste and texture.
  • Cream Cheese – Full-fat cream cheese helps make the dip smooth and creamy.
  • Greek Yogurt – This contributes to the smooth texture and adds a boost of protein. Full-fat varieties will yield the best taste and texture.
  • Olive Oil – This helps create a smooth dip with a slightly peppery taste.
  • Lemon Juice – Freshly squeezed is best!
  • Roasted Red Pepper – We use bell peppers, but you can substitute hot peppers if you prefer a bit of heat.
  • Seasonings – Everything but the bagel seasoning creates a savory flavor. Feel to experiment with different spices and combinations such as cayenne pepper or za’atar for a different taste.

How to roast peppers for roasted red pepper feta dip

For this recipe, you can either roast the red bell peppers yourself or use store-bought roasted red peppers. Either way, you can’t go wrong!

There are two ways you can roast red peppers. You can roast them directly on your stove top (if you have a fire-burning stove) or you can roast them in the oven.

If you are roasting it on the stovetop, you will turn your burner onto medium-high heat. Place the whole pepper directly on top of the flame. Using heat-safe tongs, turn the pepper every minute or two as the skin begins to blacken and bubble.

Once all sides blacken partially and the pepper is soft, remove it and allow it to cool in a bowl. At this point, you can easily peel the skin and remove the seeds, and now you have roasted red peppers!

For a more hands-off approach, you can roast your red peppers in the oven. First, you will want to half your peppers and remove the seeds. Place them all open-side down on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.

Set your oven to broil. Then, place the peppers in the oven for four to six minutes, keeping a close eye on them when you hit the four-minute mark. Once the skins blackens, you are ready to remove them and allow them to cool. Lastly, you will peel off the skin and you’re all done!

How to serve our roasted red pepper feta dip

The flavor of this dip is robust and earthy, making it super versatile and an easy appetizer! We love to serve this dip with a swirl of extra virgin olive oil and some extra seasoning on top. Za’atar, sesame seeds, or even everything but the bagel seasoning complement the flavors of this dip.

Because of the thick texture of this dip, you can serve it on a plate or platter. Alternatively, you can serve it in a bowl!

Freshly sliced toasted pita is a great dipping vessel, but you can also serve it with store-bought pita chips. For a healthier take, serve it alongside mini bell peppers and cucumbers. Both cucumbers and bell peppers have a fairly neutral flavor to balance out this hearty dip.

Lastly, you don’t even have to serve this as a dip! This creamy concoction is absolutely delicious as a sandwich spread. Just take a couple of slices of French bread or sourdough bread and smear this dip on both sides. Add some lettuce, tomato, and your favorite lunch meat, and you have a seriously upgraded simple sandwich!

You can also take your sandwich a step in a different direction and get more adventurous with your fillings. We think this dip is absolutely heavenly a Mediterranean-style sandwich. Fill your sandwich with roasted eggplant, kalamata olives, arugula, and cucumbers. You will not be disappointed!

How to store feta dip

Transfer leftovers to an airtight container, and store in the fridge for up to three to four days. We don’t recommend freezing this dip as the texture will change during the defrosting process.
