Whipped Feta Appetizer

  • Author: Marie Bostwick


  • 8 oz feta cheese
  • 16 jarred kalamata olives
  • 24 T kalamata olive juice
  • 1/3 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • Fig jam
  • Trader Joe’s Fig and Olive Crisps


  1. Roughly chop the kalamata olives. Set aside, reserving the juice.
  2. Place feta cheese and Greek yogurt into a medium sized mixing bowl. Beat together with a hand mixer until well combined.
  3. Add olive juice to the feta/yogurt mixture one tablespoon at a time, beating after each addition, until you reach the desired consistency. Feta spread should be thick but smooth and creamy.
  4. Stir chopped olives into the mixture. Cover bowl and place in the refrigerator.
  5. Assemble the appetizers just before you’re ready to serve. Spread a thick layer of the feta mixture onto each crisp. Top with approximately a quarter teaspoon of the fig jam.
  6.  Serve immediately.
