Christmas Feta


Christmas Feta is here for the holidays! Smooth and creamy whipped feta topped with orange zest, pomegranate seeds, candied nuts, and fresh thyme. It’s basically a delicious ornament in a bowl! 


Units Scale

Feta Dip

  • one 8-ounce block of feta cheese
  • 1 small clove garlic (or half if you’re sensitive to garlic)
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons honey


  • Pomegranate seeds
  • Candied nuts (see notes)
  • Thyme leaves
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Orange or lemon zest



Walnut Crispies (the candied nuts I used): Roast 1 cup roughly chopped walnuts for 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees. Mix 1 tablespoon butter, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, a dash of black pepper, and some thyme or rosemary leaves together. Pour over the nuts and toss to coat. Let cool for 10-15 minutes so the coating hardens a little bit.
