Whipped feta dip infused with roasted garlic and onion is magical and ultra-tasty. A simple side dish to warm your feelings during dull fall days.
Feta dip is a creamy, cheesy side dish to enjoy any time of the year. Creamy, fatty, but super tasty and finger-licking.
I must add and accentuate that the lingering taste is obtained from the roasted garlic with the onion. The aroma of these two veggies infused in oil and herbs is impressive, but mixed in the whipped feta dip; it is something fantastically tasty.
Sweet, a little salty, velvety rich, and genuinely ideal to enjoy next to a fresh baguette or crackers. This is unlike my old cheesy balls recipe; on the contrary, this dip is fluffy, airy, and cheesy-licious.
I like such dips as they nicely decorate my party table.
For note: you can easily roast garlic and onion earlier or a day before to earn time and effort. Whipping the feta cheese with heavy cream and a lot of herbs takes just 5 minutes.
Honey can be a great add-in to this dip. I skipped it as I wanted an authentic garlicky/cheesy taste. Honey adds sweetness, while my husband doesn’t like this combination. For me, it is a good balance of flavors, but I have omitted it for him.
This feta dip is a quick and easy appetizer to enjoy next to anything or simply with some crackers while watching a movie.
