Whipped Feta and Roasted Olives {With Video!}

We are obsessed with making feta dip. It is salty, with a touch of sweetness and oh so creamy! Top it with roasted olives for a show stopping appetizer!

How to Make Whipped Feta

If you haven’t tried making whipped feta yet, it’s time. Like really time! It’s the easiest thing to put together and looks and tasted divine! We first tried making Whipped Feta with Roasted Tomatoes and Chickpeas and we were mind blown! It was love at first bite, so that is why we had to try making this again, but different toppings!

You’re going to need a good quality food processor, The food processor is how this dip gets whipped into an ultra creamy and dreamy goodness!

In the bowl of the food processor, add feta cheese, sour cream, cream cheese, garlic, honey, lemon juice, salt, pepper, extra virgin olive oil, and a splash of water.

Pulse then process for 1 minute or until the mixture is nice and smooth.

Spread onto a platter. The mixture will be so creamy!

How to Make Roasted Olives

Roasting olives is so simple. In a baking dish, add a combination of kalamata olives and green olives. If you have a favorite olive preference, feel free to use whatever you like! Add shallots, thyme, oregano, salt, and pepper. Toss everything together. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 400 degrees F. Set aside to slightly cool.

How to assemble

After you are done platting the whipped feta, top it with the roasted olives. You want to make sure that the olive have slighty cooled before you assemble.

What to serve this with

This dip is great with pita chips, warm pita bread, or naan.  Spoon it over crostini for as a party appetizer.
