This Mediterranean Feta dip with whipped feta and roasted olives is one of the best Greek dips ever. Marinated black and green olives in olive oil and seasonings are oven roasted and then poured onto a creamy delicious and perfectly herbed feta dip. This dip is a pull from typical appetizer dips and has a feel of a fancy restaurant all while being incredibly easy to make. Creamy and indulgent, whipped feta dip is perfect for dense crackers or bread and makes a crazy good spread.
Combine drained black olives and green olives to a large mixing bowl.
Drizzle 2 tablespoons olive oil onto olives and mix to evenly coat all sides.
