Hello folks! How are you doing?

I am doing not too bad, thanks for asking :) In fact, the last couple of weeks have been ridiculously insane and hectic – so I just barely have enough time for blogging. Or when I have some extra time, I don’t have even any strength to open my blog. Fingers crossed, it will be a bit better shortly. But in a meantime, I will show up here randomly and probably with one post per week. Which also sucks as I have prepared and photographed so many new recipes, and I also have some good unpublished staff from last year.

That is why I am going to keep it super easy and short today. let’s talk about this Walnut Feta Dip, shall we?

Walnut Feta Dip

There is not much to say about this recipe. It is super tasty. It is easy to make with just a bunch of simple ingredients. It is salty, nutty, herbaceous – everything you like in a dip.

In terms of the consistency, it is thick and spreadable. So you may prefer to call it spread rather than dip. I don’t mind. In fact, it may not be a good option for dipping because of the consistency. But it will be perfect for serving with breads or crackers – or even as a part of cheese board. Think of a cracker with some dip and a grape – personally I think it sounds wonderful! Please keep in mins the dip is quite salty, so I would recommend serving it with plain or low-salt crackers.

And you can also make it “lighter” and thinner by adding up more sour cream. Why not!

Prep time



This Walnut Feta Dip is rich, nutty, salty, savoury, and irresistibly delicious. And most importantly, you will need just under 15 minutes to whip it up!


  • 1 and 1/2 cup walnut halves, toasted and slightly cooled

  • 125 gr. cream cheese, softened

  • 1 cup (~125 gr.) crumbled feta

  • 2-3 tbsp. full-fat sour cream

  • 1/2 tsp. fresh thyme plus more, for garnish

  • black pepper, optional

  • olive oil, for garnish, optional


  • Using a food processor or knife, finely chop the toasted walnuts. Set aside.
  • Using a blender, regular or immersion, beat the cream cheese, feta, and sour cream until combined, 30-40 seconds. It will not be too smooth.
  • Stir in the chopped walnuts, thyme, and season with pepper if desired. It does not require any additional salt because of feta, but that is up to you.
  • Transfer the mixture into a serving bowl and garnish with the olive oil and extra thyme, if desired. Keep the dip refrigerated for up to 3-4 days. Enjoy with bread, crackers, etc.

    What an interesting dip, I am sure the earthy walnuts against the briny, salty and creamy feta is wonderful. It’s always nice to have a new dip on the menu.

    this sounds so delicious Ben. As you say what’s not to like? I don’t really eat much dairy these days but this would be worth a bite or two! Hope life settles down for you soon …

    This sounds fantastic. I make a similar dip with roasted red pepper, and I love it. I’ll bet that with feta, this has quite a flavorful kick! I think I might like the sour cream version.
