This dip is made from simple ingredients, like feta cheese, cream cheese, garlic, and herbs.
Ideally, you should use a block of feta cheese rather than the already crumbled kind. Block feta will yield a smoother final result.
Nope! If you don’t have a food processor, you can easily make this dip with a blender or stand mixer instead.
I always recommend salting as the last step, since feta cheese is pretty salty. But if your dip is still too salty, try adding a bit more cream cheese!

How to Make Whipped Feta Dip Step by Step
Prep: Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Cut the Garlic: Cut ¼-inch off the top of a head of garlic, leaving the root and skins intact. Drizzle over 1 teaspoon olive oil and wrap the garlic tightly in foil.
Bake the Garlic: Bake the garlic for 30 minutes, or until the cloves are fork-tender. Remove the garlic from the foil and allow it to cool to room temperature.
Pulse the Dip: Once the garlic has cooled, place 8 ounces of feta, 8 ounces (1 brick) of cream cheese, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice in the bowl of a food processor and pulse on high speed until smooth and creamy.
Season the Dip: Squeeze 5 garlic cloves out of their skins and place them in the food processor, along with 1 teaspoon of fresh thyme leaves and 1 teaspoon of minced fresh parsley. Pulse until the garlic is broken up and well combined. Save the remaining garlic cloves for another recipe or add a few more to the dip– up to you! Season with salt and pepper to taste (or add a pinch of red pepper flakes for a bit of heat). Serve with crudite or pita chips.
