Guys, I’ve mentioned it a couple of times on the blog, and if you follow me on Instagram then you’ve seen it there too, I have pretty much got tomatoes coming out my ears.

Easy Baked Feta Dip

So many cherry, beefsteak and sun gold tomatoes, I don’t know what to do with them all. Because of this insane supply of summer’s favorite fruit, I am in a constant state of “tomato recipe development”.

This Baked Feta Dip was a spur of the moment creation. In addition to my over abundance of tomatoes, I bought a Costco sized container of crumbled feta a couple months back that I really needed to use. Thus this dip was born.

What is feta cheese?

Feta cheese is a white salty, Greek cheese and is usually made from sheep’s milk or a blend of sheep and goats milk. It’s a crumbly aged cheese. It is perfect for crumbling over salads and pastas.

It’s readily available at most grocery stores. You can buy it in crumbles or in a block.

What ingredients do you need for baked feta dip?

As mentioned above this recipe is beyond easy to make. Because I used feta cheese, I wanted this dip to have a very Greek Feel. That is why I chose to use kalmata olives, oregano and olive oil. You will also need, cherry tomatoes which balance out the saltiness with a subtle sweetness and garlic.

Does feta cheese melt?

You may be wondering if Feta Cheese melts. After all, I am suggesting using it in a hot dip. The answer is no, feta doesn’t melt, like say, mozzarella does. What it does do is get very soft and is perfect as a dip or spread. And also, unlike melted mozzarella, feta doesn’t become stringy or hard once it starts to cool.

While I suggest serving this dip hot, it is just as great as it cools down.

What do you eat with baked feta cheese?

I like to serve this dip with crunchy pita chips because they are great for dipping. It would also be fantastic as a spread on crostini.
