What is whipped feta

This versatile dip/spread that is made by blending crumbly feta and often, another dairy or oil-based product to achieve its creamy, fluffy consistency. Feta is a bit dryer so needs a more lubricated complement like cream cheese, sour cream, yogurt, olive oil, or my favorite toum, to help it break down as it whips.
