Serve this flavorful dip with naan or pita bread, or with pita chips.


  • 1 (8 oz.) block of feta, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup plain cream cheese, room temperature
  • 5 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. salt, divided
  • 1 cup green olives, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup minced roasted red pepper (about half a 6-oz. jar)
  • 1 large tomato, seeded, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup English cucumber, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/4 cup minced pickled banana peppers
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. minced fresh parsley or dill


  1. Make the whipped feta. In the bowl of a food processor add feta, cream cheese, 3 tablespoons of the olive oil, garlic, lemon zest and juice,  oregano, and ¼ teaspoon of the salt. Cover and pulse three or four times, then run the processor on high until mixture is well combined and almost smooth. 
  2. On a medium platter or large wooden serving board, spoon whipped feta into a mound. Using the back of a spoon, spread across board to about ½-inch thick.
  3. On top of the feta, layer green olives, red pepper, tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, and banana peppers. 
  4. Sprinkle remaining salt, pepper, and herbs over vegetables; drizzle with remaining olive oil.
  5. Serve cold or at room temperature.
