Last year in Florida, we had poolside Whipped Feta Dip and I was immediately in love. In fact, my Melmom was there before us and snapped a picture of it and it’s all I could think about the whole way there. I decided to make it the star of an easy, elevated charcuterie board. The whipped feta is so, so easy and I paired it with some naan bread, grapes, walnuts, figs, and small toast rounds. Charcuterie boards are such a great, easy & chic potluck aka perfect way to save money! Have each GF grab a different ingredient. If you wanted to make a meal out of it you could put out some mixed greens, grilled chicken breasts and have them use the board to make their customized salad!
If charcuterie boards aren’t your thing, I recently paired this Whipped Feta Dip with sliced watermelon and I could not stop eating it. I know it sounds strange but it pairs SO well together. I ended up making a huge tub for a cookout, brought diced watermelon and had an easy, delicious low carb option! I cannot wait to eat batches of this on the boat this Summer. The honey is a nice touch, but not necessary – meaning this travels SO well. It also pairs extremely well with grilled zucchini!
- 4 oz. Feta Cheese
- 1/2 Cup of Ricotta Cheese
- 2 TBSP Dried Basil or Italian Seasoning
- 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
- Local Honey (As much as your prefer, we used roughly 1/4 a cup)
- About 3-4 Fresh Basil Leaves (Chopped/Shredded for Garnish)
- In a blender or food processor, combine the ricotta cheese, feta cheese, dried basil, and olive oil until well blended and 'fluffy'. It will take about 2 minutes.
- You can enjoy as is or spoon onto your serving dish and then use the back of your spoon, pressed in the middle to create a well.
- Fill the 'well' with fresh honey, top with pepper and fresh basil.
I seriously cannot stop thinking about this dip. We just purchased a huge Watermelon at Aldi and I’m planning on eating these two together tonight. We’ve had a busy week, so I’m looking forward to relaxing and watching Handmaid’s Tale. Anyone else?! I’ll share some behind the scenes on how this dip is made over on Instagram (@RileySitton), be sure to check it out.
