Feta Yogurt Dip

This is one of my own recipes. It’s easy, quick and so versatile. It was actually inspired by the dinner I made for my husband and my 1-year engagement anniversary. I set up this whole indoor-picnic on our living room floor–picnic blanket, pillows, sparkling moscato (my favorite!), and candlelight!

I served this with fresh baked ciabatta bread. It is also really good as an accompaniment to greek kefteh meatballs or steak. 

Makes 1 cup

Feta Yogurt Dip


2 oz feta cheese, crumbled

2 cups plain yogurt

1/2 clove garlic, grated very finely

zest and juice of 1/2 a lemon

salt and pepper, to taste

paprika, to taste



1. With a fine-mesh strainer (or cheesecloth or even paper towel), strain the yogurt for at least 30 minutes.

2. In a medium-sized bowl, mash the feta with a fork well.

3. Add the remaining ingredients and yogurt, mixing well. Chill and serve.
