There’s something ridiculously good, salty and savory about feta cheese that seems to pair well with just about anything, which is exactly why I wanted to make a gorgeous dressing with it! And bonus — this creamy feta dressing also pairs well as a dip if you happen to want something a little different.
A few recommendations: pour it on a tomato cucumber salad. Drizzle it on a greek inspired chickpea pasta salad. Dip your carrots or cucumbers in it. Toss it in a chicken wrap. Drizzle it over salmon or greek chicken kabobs. However you decide to enjoy this feta dressing, it’s going to be fab!
Ingredients in healthy feta yogurt dressing
You’ll need just 4 core ingredients to make this easy, creamy feta yogurt dressing. It’s super simple but still bursting with flavor! Here’s what you’ll need:
- Garlic: a must in a delicious, savory dressing, dip or sauce.
- Plain greek yogurt: I like using a whole milk or 2% plain greek yogurt so that the dressing isn’t too thin. Siggi’s is my favorite plain yogurt.
- Feta crumbles: the star of the show in this recipe. Feta adds a wonderful saltiness to the dressing.
- Lemon juice: squeeze a fresh lemon in the dressing to balance out the flavors.
- Water: to thin the dressing a bit.
- Salt & pepper: for the perfect amount of seasoning.
