Roasted Red Pepper Dip with Feta
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.
This Roasted Red Pepper Dip with Feta is something that’s perfect to make when it’s hot weather and you have mint in the garden. 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 will still be delicious!
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. And trust me, no one will even think about this being low in carbs! This red pepper dip is one of my favorite snacks with celery, but it’s good with a variety of low-carb veggies!
What ingredients do you need?
- jar of roasted red bell peppers
- Minced Garlic (affiliate link)
- cream cheese
- Feta cheese
- Greek yogurt
- chopped fresh mint (optional)
- fresh-squeezed lemon juice (I used my fresh-frozen lemon juice )
- Olive Oil (affiliate link)
- salt to taste
What if you don’t have fresh mint?
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, I think this dip will still be delicious without it. You could also try parsley instead of mint if you like the sound of that.
What other veggies are good with this 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.
