cucumber salad with whipped feta dressing

Updated: Oct 15, 2022

This whipped feta dressing is SO delicious. It’s made with Greek yogurt so it’s high protein, and blended with dill and lemon so it’s really refreshing!


Since I had the blender out I also made hummus, and baked these homemade whole wheat pita chips to dip with. I plated everything with banana peppers and pickled red onions for a kick. Hope you love it as much as I did! xo

1/2 6” whole wheat pita
