Fun with Feta


I have always been a big fan of Feta and it seems the whole world has jumped in on the Feta craze recently. I have seen a lot of recipes for variations of whipped Feta and it seemed this would be a perfect fit with some of our herb blends.

We had a fun day in the kitchen whipping up some tasty concoctions. While I love to share test kitchen samples with neighbors and friends, I did sneak a little container of my favorite batch and just thinking about it makes me want more!

We started with a couple of different bases. If you use your electric mixer, you will still have some chunks of feta. If you blend in your food processer you will get a smoother fluffy mix. I liked the chunks so its simply a matter of taste.

The first recipe we tried called for a full cup of feta. We found that to be a bit salty and cut the feta down to cup.

VARIATION 1 – Our favorite version

8 oz cream cheese, softened

⅓ cup mayo

cup feta

VARIATION 2 – a healthy and lighter option

1 cup Greek yogurt

⅓ cup mayo

cup feta

Whip all ingredients together until light and fluffy, adding your Harvest Barn Seasoning of choice:

We loved all of these served with pita chips, French bread, or crispy crackers. Try some on avocado toast to kick the favor up a notch. They were tasty with carrot and celery strips with the healthy Greek yogurt version.
