Roasted Red Pepper Dip with Feta is perfect for a party appetizer, and when it’s served with veggie dippers it’s a tasty low-carb treat. And when I make this in the summer I love to add some finely chopped mint!

This Roasted Red Pepper Dip with Feta is something that I love to make when it’s hot weather and you have mint in the garden or mint is inexpensive at the grocery store. But for people who love roasted red peppers and Feta (like me) this is a tasty dip for any time of year. And if you don’t feel like buying mint during the winter, just leave it out and this roasted red pepper dip will still be fabulous!

And if you serve low-carb vegetables to scoop up the dip like I did, this is perfect for a snack, but also flavorful enough to serve for a party. Trust me, no one will even think about this being low in carbs!

This roasted red pepper dip is one of my favorite snacks with celery, but it’s good with a variety of low-carb veggies! And as you can see in the photo it’s one of the things I love to eat with sugar-snap peas. No matter what kind of crunchy dippers you use, I hope you enjoy trying this!

What if you don’t have fresh mint for the roasted red pepper dip?

I did love the fresh mint flavor with the Feta in this tasty dip. But if you don’t have fresh mint and don’t want to buy it just for one recipe, this will still be delicious without it. You could also try parsley instead of mint if you like the sound of that.

What veggies are good with the Roasted Red Pepper Dip?

I do love this dip with the celery and sugar-snap peas you see in the photo. But it will also be tasty with other low-carb veggies like like jicama, cauliflower, asparagus, green beans, turnips, radishes, or broccoli.

How low in carbs is the Roasted Red Pepper Dip?

This easy and amazing dip with red pepper, creamy cheese, Greek yogurt, garlic, lemon juice, and Feta has only 4 net carbs per serving!

What else can you make with roasted red peppers?

If you love to buy those jars of roasted red peppers or roast your own, you might also like to make Roasted Red Pepper and Garlic Aioli Sauce, Spicy Red Fish Stew, Hungarian Pot Roast, Paprika Chicken, or No-Pasta Salad with Zucchini and Italian Sausage.
