Whipped Feta with Roasted Strawberries

This whipped feta with greek yogurt dip is paired with balsamic roasted strawberries and basil. It’s a sweet, savoury, and DELICIOUS appetizer or starter. Can be made in advance, with an option to serve as crostini!

I am OBSESSED with this whipped feta and roasted strawberry appetizer – and I think you will be too! It’s such a delicious dish with both sweet and savoury flavours that complement each other perfectly.

The whole recipe is only 9 ingredients and so easy to make. It’s perfect for a dinner party and you can serve it as a dip (as pictured) or as crostini (instructions below).

And if you just want to make this at home for your own enjoyment – you can totally just serve it as an open-faced toast ;). I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Tips For Serving This Recipe

If you’re making this recipe for a party, I’d recommend making the feta + strawberries a couple hours to one day in advance. Prepare the bread and basil right before serving to maintain freshness.
Be sure to keep the whipped feta and roasted strawberries separate until serving. You will also want to CHILL both ingredients in the fridge – this will prevent the whipped feta from melting.
You can serve this recipe as a dip (as pictured) OR you can serve it as a crostini! If you’d prefer making crostini, simply slice up a baguette, toast the bread, spread whipped feta on each slice, top with a spoonful of strawberries, and garnish with fresh basil, black pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil.
If you don’t have a party to go to, but want to make this recipe anyway – simply enjoy it as an open-faced toast!
Leftovers will keep for a few days in airtight containers in the fridge. If you can store the feta separately from the strawberries, that’s best but not absolutely necessary.
