This Lemon Whipped Feta is a creamy, tangy and slightly sweet dip that makes a refreshing appetizer or snack.

Extremely easy to make, feta cheese is simply whipped with lemon juice and garlic and finished off with fresh lemon zest and a sprinkling of za’atar. I love serving this feta dip with crunchy vegetables, pita chips or pita bread.

You can also spread this on toast or baguette!
