Does feta cheese melt?

You may be wondering if Feta Cheese melts, it’s not your classic melty cheese. Well,  the answer is no, feta doesn’t melt, like say, mozzarella does. But therein lies the magic! What it does do is get very soft and is perfect as a dip or spread. And also, unlike melted mozzarella, feta doesn’t become stringy or hard once it starts to cool.

Top Tips

  • When mixing, make sure your cream cheese is at room temp, so it blends well.
  • Ideally use an electric mixer.
  • For more of a Mediterranean vibe, bake some sliced pita bread for dipping.
  • Choose a spicier pico de gallo if you want more of a spicy kick to the dip.
