Greek Salad Dip

As usual…haha…this recipe is just written on a piece of paper & I have had it for over 30 years! I love going through my recipe binders & deciding to make some of the older recipes!

I used some low fat options to make this dip… the original recipe if for sour cream but I used non-fat greek yogurt… the cream cheese I used was low fat cream cheese. The dip is topped with lots of chopped up tomatoes, cucumbers & peppers.

This is easy to make, you can use a food processor to mix up or I bet even a blender if you don’t have a food processor

Here is the recipe *** I do not know the original source of this recipe


For the Dip

2 8 oz pkg of low fat cream cheese, cut into chunks

8 oz of feta cheese, crumbled

1/2 cup greek yogurt

1 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp crushed red pepper

1/4 tsp garlic powder or 1 clove of fresh garlic minced

Toppings for the Dip

1 small tomato, finely chopped

2 green onions, chopped

1/2 small cucumber..*** I used a 3-4 inch chunk of an english cucumber

1/2 red pepper…. I used red pepper but you can use any colour pepper you like

10-12 or more….Pitted chopped Kalamata olives

To serve you will need some mini pitas or pita chips


I put the dip into a pie plate because a shallow bowl works well here

  1. Combine all of the dip ingredients in the bowl of a food processor, mix well, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed to ensure all of the ingredients are well mixed
  2. Place the dip into the serving dish
  3. i combined the chopped tomato, green onion, cucumber & pepper together, then put them on top of the dip. Then I sprinkled on the chopped olives & I sprinkled a bit of dried parsley overtop but that isn’t necessary
  4. Store in fridge until ready to eat!
  5. Serve with mini pitas and or pita chips or crackers

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
