How To Make Whipped Feta

Whipping feta cheese with greek yogurt and olive oil is SUCH a delicious way to enjoy feta and make it into a dip/spread. It’s super easy too – all you need is a food processor and a few minutes to get the job done.

  1. Place feta cheese, greek yogurt, olive oil, and black pepper in your food processor.
  2. Blend for a few minutes until smooth, scraping down with a spatula as needed.
  3. Chill in the fridge for 30-60 minutes. That’s it!!

How To Roast Strawberries

Roasting strawberries really brings out their sweetness, making them soft and juicy. It’s a delicious and different way to enjoy this summer fruit. It’s also SUPER easy to do!

  1. Start by preheating your oven to 350F.
  2. Wash, dry, and remove stems from strawberries. Slice each berry in half or quarters (depending on size).
  3. Spread the berries on a lined baking sheet.
  4. In this recipe, we’ll be tossing them in a mixture of balsamic vinegar + honey. Spread them out in an even layer after tossing them in the balsamic mixture.
  5. Then, transfer the strawberries to the oven and allow them to roast for about 30-35 minutes. They’ll start to soften and release their juices when done.
  6. Allow them to cool slightly, before transferring them to a container for storage. Be sure to get all the yummy juices in there too!

Tips For Serving This Recipe

  1. If you’re making this recipe for a party, I’d recommend making the feta + strawberries a couple hours to one day in advance. Prepare the bread and basil right before serving to maintain freshness.
  2. Be sure to keep the whipped feta and roasted strawberries separate until serving. You will also want to CHILL both ingredients in the fridge – this will prevent the whipped feta from melting.
  3. You can serve this recipe as a dip (as pictured) OR you can serve it as a crostini! If you’d prefer making crostini, simply slice up a baguette, toast the bread, spread whipped feta on each slice, top with a spoonful of strawberries, and garnish with fresh basil, black pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil.
  4. If you don’t have a party to go to, but want to make this recipe anyway – simply enjoy it as an open-faced toast!
  5. Leftovers will keep for a few days in airtight containers in the fridge. If you can store the feta separately from the strawberries, that’s best but not absolutely necessary.

NOTE: you can serve the whipped feta in other ways, not just with these roasted strawberries. Feel free to get creative here. I know people love serving it with roasted cherry tomatoes or pita bread, for instance!

Ingredients

Roasted Strawberries:

Whipped Feta:

  • Approx. 8 oz feta cheese (around 220 grams)
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil (plus more for drizzling/serving)
  • Black pepper, to taste

Serve With:

  • Crusty bread (like sourdough or baguette)
  • Fresh basil, chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Wash strawberries and remove stems. Slice each berry in half or quarters (depending on size). Spread berries on lined baking sheet.
  • Whisk balsamic vinegar and honey together. Drizzle over strawberries and toss until combined. Spread in an even layer on baking sheet, then transfer to the oven and roast for about 30-35 minutes. They'll start to soften and release their juices when done.
  • Meanwhile, make whipped feta by adding the feta cheese, greek yogurt, olive oil, and pepper to a food processor. Blend ingredients together for a few minutes until smooth, scraping down with a spatula as needed. Transfer to the fridge and chill for 30-60 minutes.
  • When strawberries are done roasting, remove them from the oven and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes. Transfer them to a container (with all the yummy juices!) and chill in the fridge (keep separate from whipped feta).
  • When you're ready to serve this recipe, transfer the whipped feta to a large bowl and top with roasted strawberries. Serve with toasted crusty bread for dipping. Garnish with freshly chopped basil, an extra drizzle of olive oil, and a sprinkle of black pepper.
