This Feta Tzatziki Dip is a flavorful and unique dip that is sure to disappear quickly! So I just recently finished re-reading the complete works of Sherlock Holmes.  I picked up the 2-book set one holiday break back when I was in college, and I pulled it off the bookshelf again not too long ago.  This is a legit good read, folks!  Sir Arthur Conan Doyle knew how to write a good tale.  I’ve always been a huge Sherlock Holmes fan, and I find it fun to daydream what it would have been like working as a detective in Victorian England.  I would have definitely worn one of those awesome Sherlock Holmes hats.  Heck, much to my wife’s chagrin, I’d wear one of those hats today if I had one.

This Feta Tzatziki Dip is a flavorful and unique dip that is sure to disappear quickly!Speaking of detectives, a couple of years ago we went out of town for a long weekend.  It snowed while we were gone, and when we came back I noticed some foot prints in the snow near the corner of our house.  We have large windows in that part of the house, and I was afraid someone had been snooping around while we were gone.  Whoever it was had obviously come up our neighbor’s driveway (which had been shoveled), but then cut across to our window.  Aha!  I was on their trail!  They weren’t going to look into my window without me having a say about it.

I called my neighbor that evening to see if he knew anything about the mysterious tracks.  Nope.  I then even called the local police to see if there had been any reports of crime in the area over the weekend.  Nope.  In fact, the officer on duty told me that he didn’t remember a call to our street in many years.  (We live on a quiet cul-de-sac.)  Ok, so now my spidey-sense was on high alert.  I channeled my inner Sherlock, and went out and inspected the prints.  Whoever had been snooping around had been wearing large boots.  Likely a man, or perhaps a women who likes large boots.  Or perhaps a woman trying to throw me off the scent.  Aha!

With the big game just days away now, I wanted to create a fun dipping sauce for our snack table.  For the record, I have absolutely no problem with ketchup.  But ketchup is a bit on the boring side when you’re having guests over.  So I set out to come up with something new and unique.  Oh, and delicious.  It had to be delicious if I was going to serve it to company!  Well, I like feta.  How could I incorporate feta into a dip?  Tzatziki!  That’s it!  I wanted to create a Feta Tzatziki Dip.  So I hit the kitchen and started playing around.  The result is this tasty dip that is sure to be the star of your snack table.

This Feta Tzatziki Dip is a flavorful and unique dip that is sure to disappear quickly!I stopped by Walmart to grab some plain Greek yogurt and the other ingredients for this dip.  I knew I wanted to serve this dip with fries, so I swung through the frozen section to pick up some of Alexia’s Roasted Crinkle Cut Fries.  That’s when I noticed their Crispy Onion Rings.  Well, I do love onion rings, so I tossed a bag of those into my cart, too.  We’re pretty particular about our fries here.  I need crispy and flavorful.  I don’t want any soggy potatoes pretending to be fries.  Alexia nailed it.  Both the fries and the onion rings were delicious.  In fact, my wife and I couldn’t decide which we liked best…so we settled on a sampler platter instead.

This Feta Tzatziki Dip is a flavorful and unique dip that is sure to disappear quickly!For the big game this year, we’ll likely head across the street and homegate it up with our neighbors.  I don’t need to get out there and brave the weather and traffic to go to a party.  Nope, I’d prefer to just run across the street in my sweatpants instead.  We take turns with our neighbors each year hosting a party for the game, and we always have a tasty array of snacks to munch on throughout the evening.  This Feta Tzatziki Dip will absolutely be one of our contributions to this year’s party.  But I may need to bring an extra bag or two of fries and rings!

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • 1 tsp salt

Notes

I recommend using a high quality Greek yogurt here. You're looking for a thick yogurt since it's being used in a dip, and it's definitely worth spending a bit more for a high quality yogurt!

  1. Heck – it’s better that your sleuthing lead to the discovery that it was the gas man who was “snooping” round yalls gas meter and not someone else! One of my neighbors (they moved recently) was a stay at home mom or should I say stay at home she-sherlock! She would text me whenever she saw any one coming up to our door during the day – one time, I had a tree company come to take some trees down and as I wasn’t home, she took pictures every hour or so and sent them to me just in case they messed up! Good neighbors are hard to find! And I bet YOUR neighbors think they hot the jackpot with y’all! Specially with the onslaught of food!
    Btw, Alexia fries do rock! And that dip – holy moly! I’ve had a dip with cucumber and Greek yogurt – but not with sour cream and feta too – totally decadent sounding, David!

    1. Haha…I love that your neighbor was sending you hourly updates of what was happening at home. Who needs a surveillance system when you’ve got neighbors like that?? 🙂 Good neighbors are totally hard to find! It’s kinda strange since chances are you don’t know anyone when you move in, and you just hope you hit the jackpot with good neighbors. We’ve had both, and I definitely prefer the kind that take pics of your house to keep you updated. 🙂

  2. I almost didn’t leave a comment because I am addicted to ketchup. LOL! But, I can leave my ketchup comfort zone and get totally onboard with this dip. I mean, what’s not to love about it? Feta, sour cream, garlic, dill? Yum!! And, I really like Alexia’s products. This reminds me I need to buy some of their fries soon and give those onion rings a try too!

    1. Wait…your love for ketchup almost kept you from leaving a comment?? Don’t let that happen again, Tamara! I love me some ketchup, too! It’s just that ketchup isn’t really a party dip, ya know? 🙂 Oh, and I highly recommend Alexia’s rings. Hands down some of the best onion rings ever! (And I’m including the fried ones you get in restaurants, too.) We’ll be keeping a bag of those around I suspect.

  3. Haha! It’s okay David. Not everyone is cut-out for a life of sleuthing. That’s a good thing because otherwise you wouldn’t be sharing such awesome recipes. This dip looks delicious. I’ve never made tzatziki so I definitely need to make this!

    1. Hehe…well, at least I tried to be a super smart detective, right? Guess I’ll stick to the kitchen instead. 🙂 Oh, and this tzatziki dip is almost embarrassingly easy to make…and it’s perfect for all sorts of snacks!

    1. Yup, there went my career as a gumshoe. At least we can dream, right, Becca? I think making dips in the kitchen is where I need to be spending my time instead. A dip a day! Oh, and these onion rings are crazy good…I was definitely impressed with ’em!

    1. Feta lovers unite!! And I’m just imagining how tasty cranberries would be in a dip like this. I might have to give that a shot next time, Dannii…thanks! 🙂

  4. Confession. Since I was 18, there are two hats I want to be in possession of- A Sherlocks Holmes hat and one of those Russian hats. I am ALWAYS on the lookout for them 😉

    Mate, this is the first time I’ve ever seen tzatziki and feta combined together- I’m going to pretend the cottage cheese and almonds I’m eating now is just that…

    1. Arman, I think we are long lost brothers…because I actually have one of those Russian hats! Speaking of that, I might need to pull it out…it’s pretty cold up here and I could use those ear flappy things right about now. But the Sherlock hat is still on my list to find. 🙂

      I think cottage cheese and almonds sounds a lot like tzatziki and feta. Did it hit the craving? Hehe. Also, this dip is crazy delicious…I might have eaten it with a spoon. Don’t tell anyone.

  5. Your story reminded me of one of my neighbors that loved to watch us work in the back yard. We were planting flower bulbs and he suspiciously kept an eye on us all day. What did he think we were digging? Hmmmm… Neighbors can be a mixed bag for sure! Beautiful and tasty dip – and yes, we love the Alexia fries and rings as well! #client

    1. Hehe…maybe he was just making sure you weren’t digging up the bulbs in his yard, Sharon! Neighbors can be such a mixed bag…but that’s what makes for great stories, right? 🙂 Thanks!

  6. Loved your sleuthing skills and the meter man story. Ha, too funny! As for this dip, I am a fan of all the ingredients my friend. Looks delicious and I like the idea of the french fries to dip. Good stuff.

    1. I’m pretty sure I could eat this dip with fries and tots for dinner, Kevin! Check that, I think I could just eat this dip straight up with a spoon…or a high-flow straw. 🙂

  7. You read my Mediterranean food lovin’ mind! I need these fries and feta dip. NEEEEEEED!

    I’m pretty sure that IG of you reading the complete works of Sherlock Homes Volume 1 in the airport or somewhere was what made me actually click through to your blog the first time. True story. That is where it all began. {tear} And I just recently re-read it too. Both volumes. And I loved every minute of it. 🙂

    1. Hahaha…I totally remember that IG of reading Sherlock Holmes. I was just wondering the other day how we first connected…crazy. Thanks, Sir ACD! Now, back to these fries and feta tzatziki dip…I’m pretty sure I could eat this with a spoon. But I gotta be honest, I think my favorite was dipping the crispy onion rings in this dip. I would never have thought onion rings and tzatziki together…but woah. Seriously good!
