Avocado Feta Dip with Basil is a Mediterranean flavoured version of traditional guacamole! A delicious dip made with avocado, feta and basil. Serve with crudites, crackers or chips at your next party.
Avocado Feta Dip with Basil is "Guac with a twist" according to my hubby! And that pretty much describes it perfectly.
While this party dip has some of the ingredients of traditional guacamole: avocado, garlic, jalapeño and lemon, it also has fabulous Greek flavours. Adding in feta cheese, basil, oregano and thyme gives this dip a Mediterranean flair.
Perfect for serving with pita chips, toasted flatbread and fresh vegetables!
No avocado on hand? Try this Herbed Feta Dip with Lemon instead. Just as tasty, just as delicious.
And here's another plus: no cilantro! While I love cilantro and include it in many of my recipes, like my Quick Chunky Guacamole and these Six Fresh Salsa Recipes, this Avocado Feta Dip has none. So if your guests are not fans of cilantro, this may be the ideal dip for them!
While I'm a firm believer that guacamole should be included on every party menu, it's fun to change it up once in a while. Adding Greek flavours to authentic guacamole gives an element of surprise with every dip!
Here's your shopping list to make this healthy party appetizer. This recipe will make about one cup of dip. If you're serving a larger group, double the recipe.

This sounds perfect to serve at (hot) Texas summer bbqs. Would it work w/o a food processor...asking for a friend, 😉? Thank you; we find your recipes to be amazing!
Hi Elizabeth, While a food processor makes short work of this dip recipe, you can certainly make it without one. I'd suggest finely chopping all the herbs and the red onion first, crumbling the feta cheese, and using a ripe avocado. You'll need a little more elbow grease to mix it, but it doesn't have to be perfectly smooth. It will still be delicious!

I'm all about the snacky dips lately, and this one definitely speaks to me. I'm not sure what I love more, that you added feta or basil! Sounds perfectly flavourful Elaine!
