Notes

STORAGE – Feta dip will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. It will thicken in the fridge, so loosen with 1-2 tablespoons yogurt, if necessary.

MAKE AHEAD – Make 1-2 days in advance. Fluff it back up in the food processor, electric mixer or by hand. Remove from the fridge 20-30 minutes before serving to take the chill off.
