What is Htipiti?

Htipiti a Greek dip traditionally made with feta cheese and roasted red peppers.

Different variations exist – some include lemon, others include sundried tomatoes. It’s easy to tweak to your preferences.

If you are looking for authenticity, make sure you don’t process the dip until it is completely smooth. This dip is best when you are left with some chunks of feta.

Ingredients for the Spicy Feta Dip:


Red peppers – Although it is very easy to roast your own red peppers, you can use already prepared roasted red peppers to cut down on preparation time.

Feta cheese – Sheep’s Milk Feta is the traditional choice, but any Feta will do.

Red pepper flakes – You may also use fresh chili, but dried works very well.

Extra virgin olive oil – Helps bind the ingredients together.

Sea salt and black pepper – Brings all the flavours together.
