Healthy whipped feta dip is the perfect spread, dip, sauce.. anything! It’s tart, tangy, and creamy, which is why I paired it with honey roasted figs. The sweetness from the figs compliments the feta dip just so well. If you don’t have figs or aren’t a fig person, you can honestly use this dip with anything because it’s so good!
