Herby Feta and Yogurt Dip With Sumac

Herby Feta and Yogurt Dip With Sumac

This tangy and creamy dip is the perfect appetizer for a warm summer evening outside, and it makes a nice condiment for grilled meats and veggies, too. Fresh green herbs brighten up the salty feta, and sumac gives it another layer of flavor and a gorgeous pop of color. Choose a feta in brine over vacuum-packed, if you’ve got the option. Feta varies a lot in salt content, so you won’t see a measured amount of salt here; just taste the dip and add a bit if you think it needs it.

  1. Step 1

    Add the yogurt, feta and lemon juice to the bowl of a food processor. Purée the mixture until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add the parsley, mint, scallions and sumac, and pulse a few times just to combine.
  2. Step 2

    Transfer the dip to a bowl, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
  3. Step 3

    Just before serving, give the dip a good stir and add salt to taste, if necessary. Top the dip with a drizzle of olive oil and sprinkle with additional parsley, mint, scallions and sumac. Serve with pita chips or crudités. Store leftovers, covered, in the fridge for up to 3 days.
