This whipped feta dip is velvety smooth and extra creamy. I love to serve it with a fresh cucumber salad, a ton of fresh herbs, and chewy wedges of fresh pita bread.

  1. Combine cucumber, vinegar, olive oil, sumac, salt and black pepper in a medium bowl. Toss to combine. Stir in herbs. Taste, add more salt or pepper if needed (but remember to go easy on the salt-- the feta dip will add plenty). Serve with whipped feta dip.


Whipped feta dip will keep, covered refrigerated, for up to 1 week. It will firm up when cold. To soften, let sit at room temperature for about an hour.

Cucumber salad is best consumed right away.
