Whipped Feta Dip - Dash of Mandi

I have been craving all of the fresh Mediterranean flavors lately. Whipped feta is one of my new favorite things. I recently made some and threw some chilled beets, chopped pistachios, lemon and dill on top. It was so satisfying and delicious. My husband and I loved it. Also, whipped feta is incredibly easy to make at home. So, don’t be discouraged! All you need is a hand mixer or immersion blender. A stand mixer with the right attachment will work too!

Creamy whipped feta dip can be eaten alone with naan bread and pita chips. However, I thought throwing some cucumbers, tomatoes and olives on top would make it more of a dip. This would be perfect for serving a group. The best part is no cooking is involved.

I recommend using fresh naan bread for serving instead of frozen! The fresh naan just has such a great fluffy texture to it that compliments the fluffy whipped feta dip. However, use whatever is easiest for you! Pita chips are another great option. I get my fresh naan bread from Trader Joe’s. They also sell mini naan bread at some big grocery stores that would be perfect for this dip.

    Also, Just a heads up that your ingredients list says lime juice and zest but it seems like its supposed to be lemon based on the directions and pic!
