The Greek dipping with tomato and feta was a hit when I took it to a party, and when we ran out of low-carb pita bread, people ate it with a fork!
this week for Friday favorite I remind you of this amazing Greek dip with tomato and feta, a recipe I got from my coach Wendy after I told her I needed appetizers for a party that night. Wendy told me about her favorite dip, and when I got to my car after working out, I quickly wrote down the ingredients on a piece of paper. I made it with some perfect fresh garden tomatoes and when I got to the party I realized that the dish I had to assemble it in was too small for the amount of ingredients, and I didn’t have enough toasted pita. But no need to worry! The drop that Wendy shared with me was a massive hit! In fact, at a large table covered in more food than you can imagine, my entire dip was devoured in just a few hours.
And when the pita bread ran out, people assumed it was a salad and put it on a plate with a spoon and ate it with a fork. It didn’t hurt that I used heirloom tomatoes from my garden of course! But Wendy assured me that even if I did this at the end of winter with cherry tomatoes, it would always be delicious.
This recipe is popular online!
Wendy didn’t tell me where she found the recipe, and after she brought it to the party, I put it back in the house, took pictures, and edited the pictures that I thought I’d google to see if I could rely on the source. I found a lot of blogs that made something similar, but the first one I noticed was Vita Dip In Clover Lane, though I doubt that’s where Wendy found it. Thanks Wendy, for the great workouts and this great new recipe. I can say I will do it over and over again!

What pita bread did you make with it?
There are a number of delicious things you can eat, but I’m used to them My favorite low carb Arabic bread It was perfect with a Greek dip! I think it would be delicious with sliced cucumbers, thin slices of jicama, or small scoops of sweet peppers if you want less carbs.
How to make the Greek Dip with Tomatoes and Feta:
(Scroll down for the full recipe with nutritional information.)
- I toasted My favorite low carb Arabic bread For divers, do this first if you like, or serve with pita chips, bread, or flatbread if you prefer. (Serve with flatbread or gluten-free crackers.)
- Cover the bottom of the dish with a thin layer of olive oil and spread it with a pastry brush.
- If the garden tomatoes are too juicy, chop the tomatoes and drain them for a few minutes in a colander.
- Make a layer of chopped tomatoes in the dish.
- Cover the tomatoes with a layer of crumbled feta cheese. (I wanted the tomatoes to pop, so I took a fork and gently “stirred” it to get some tomatoes to pop out.
- Then make a layer of chopped green onions.
- sprinkle with Greek seasoning (affiliate link) and serve it with something crunchy to dip.
- Or for less carbs, use it as a salad and just eat it with a fork! I promise, anyone who loves tomatoes and feta will devour this!

2 tons olive oil (use a good quality extra virgin olive oil with good flavor for this recipe)
4 cups diced tomatoes
8 oz. feta cheese block
1/4 cup sliced green onion
1 T Greek seasoning (or a little more)
- If you’re making pita bread dippers, cut pita circles into eighths, spread out on a baking sheet, and toast in a hot oven or toaster oven until they begin to turn brown. watch carefully; Pita bread takes only 5 minutes or less to toast at 400F/200C.
- Place a thin layer of olive oil on the bottom of a serving dish. (I used an oval dish that was 12 inches long and 8 inches wide at the widest part.)
- Cut off the stem end of the tomato, then make 1/2-inch slices and cut each slice into small squares. (If you are using juicy garden tomatoes, you may want to let them dry briefly in a colander set in the sink.)
- Layer the tomatoes over the olive oil.
- Then cut the feta cheese over the tomatoes. If you want to show some tomatoes, take a fork and “flip” it gently until the tomatoes appear.
- Cut the desired amount of green onions into thin slices and sprinkle them over the crumbled feta cheese.
- sprinkle with Greek seasoning (Referral link).
- Serve the dip with Arabic toast, bagels, or flatbreads, or serve it as a salad and eat it with a fork! I doubt this will keep well in the fridge (refrigerating the tomatoes ruins the flavour) but you probably won’t have any left.
