This dip is inspired by Mediterranean cuisine and blends bold flavors with creamy textures. The combination of feta cheese's richness and Greek yogurt's tanginess creates a smooth and protein-packed treat. Fresh herbs like chives and thyme enhance the dip's aroma and color.
Serve it with colorful vegetable dippers like carrot sticks, cucumber slices, and bell pepper strips to make it visually appealing as it is delicious. Also, the calcium-rich Greek yogurt is packed with probiotics, which promote gut health and digestion.
