About this herbed feta dip recipe
Since overcoming my dislike of parsley, I’ve transitioned into a slight obsession with it. I use it as a garnish (how 90’s of me, right?), and I adore it in salads. I tear off the parsley leaves whole and add them to the greens – the bright flavor it imparts is a salad game-changer.
It’s only natural I would use my new(ish) love in a herbed feta dip recipe. After all, parsley is the queen of all herbs, is it not? She’s certainly the most popular girl in the class.
I also used chives for a subtle onion flavor and fresh mint. If you’re raising your eyebrow at the mint, just give it a try. It sets this dip apart from other dips.
I made it for my grandparents’ 60th (60th!!!!) wedding anniversary party and my aunt was trying to guess the herbs. She couldn’t guess the mint but she knew there was something in the dip giving it a little extra flavor boost. It’s the mint. Make sure to try it before you discount it.
A touch of garlic powder and plenty of ground black pepper round out this dip. Smooth cream cheese helps bind everything together and make this super spreadable. I’m telling you, it’s going to become your new favorite.
PS: If you like this dip, you’ll love my lemon dill whipped feta!

I gotcha covered! Here’s some of my favorites:
- In a food processor, combine cream cheese, feta cheese, water, garlic powder and black pepper. Combine until mostly smooth (will appear grainy – some remaining texture is good). Spoon this mixture into a bowl and stir in herbs until combined (see notes).
- Taste and add salt as desired.
- Serve with crackers or toasted slices of french bread.
- Makes about 1 ½ cups.
- Adjust herbs to your liking – if you don’t like chives or mint, feel free to leave them out or try substituting a different herb. I often increase the amount of parsley – I love the fresh flavor of it.
- You can also add the herbs to the food processor and blend them in – it makes this dip a really pretty green color.
