Ingredients + Substitutions
- Tomatoes – I use quartered (or smaller) cherry tomatoes because I love their bright, vibrant, and sweet flavor. If you prefer, you can use diced Roma tomatoes, beefsteak tomato, or grape tomatoes. Any kind will do the trick!
- Feta Cheese – For the best flavor and texture, I recommend using a whole block of feta cheese, then crumbling that with your hands. It’s creamier and richer in flavor!
- Green Onions – Be sure to very thinly slice the onions so that onion flavor incorporates throughout the dip without any big chunks. It should complement the other flavors, not overtake them!
- Greek Seasoning – I use Cavender’s pre-made Greek seasoning to keep it easy. It is usually pretty readily available at most grocery stores! Alternatively, if you’re feeling a little more ambitious, you can whip up a batch of my homemade Greek seasoning.
- Extra-Virgin Olive Oil – A drizzle of olive oil rounds out the brighter flavors in this dip perfectly.

Recipe Step by Step
I am going to highlight a few key steps in the recipe here, but make sure to jump down to the recipe card for comprehensive instructions on how to make feta and tomato dip.
- Step 1– Cut the cherry tomatoes into quarters or smaller,
- Step 2– Crumble the feta cheese, and finely slice the green onion.
- Step 3– Combine all three in a bowl, reserving 1 tablespoon of feta. Add on the Greek seasoning and olive oil.
- Step 4- Garnish the bowl with the reserved tablespoon of feta, then serve immediately or store in the fridge.
- Use a feta cheese block – I’ll say this again and again! The flavor and texture of a feta cheese block just can’t be emulated by the pre-crumbled feta you can find at the store.
- Chop the tomatoes small – I recommend chopping each cherry tomato into quarters so the tomato pieces incorporate well with the feta crumbles. Whole cherry tomatoes, although small, are still just slightly too big to create a uniform dip.
- Taste and season as needed – I find the dip to be perfect as-is, but feel free to play around with other seasonings as desired. Try adding some red pepper flakes for spice, a sprinkle of fresh black pepper, or even a little extra salt if you like a more salty dip.
Recipe Short Cuts
If you need to make this recipe, but are extra short on time, here are a few ideas that can help make this recipe even faster!
- Use pre-crumbled feta – I think it’s worth the extra time to manually crumble up a fresh block of feta, but if you want to save a little bit of time, feel free to use pre-crumbled feta instead.
- Prepare the dip ahead of time – There really isn’t a whole lot that goes into this recipe, so you can take a few minutes the day before you plan to serve it to just prep your ingredients and dump them in a bowl. That way, it’s ready to go when you’re ready to eat!
