Low Carb Feta Dressing Recipe

When following a strict keto diet, you indulge in lots of greens — garden salads, celery snacks and veggie sides. Why not spice these up with a creamy feta dressing? This recipe calls for a majority of yogurt, feta cheese, and vinegar (or substitute with lemon juice) with tiny amounts Worcestershire sauce, garlic, cumin, ground mustard, salt, and black pepper. To top it off, you will drop in a pinch of dill (or dill leaves) and a splash of cream or milk. Then, all you have to do is seal the lid to your container and shake up your ingredients! A stirring method will also do, but it is much less fun.

My favorite thing about this creamy feta dressing is that it is so versatile. You can use this keto salad dressing as a sauce or a dip — put it on homemade gyros (using keto flatbread, of course) for your on-the-go lunch or low carb crackers with olive oil into a big bowl at a party. I love it as a greek salad dressing with kalamata olives. No matter how you choose to eat it, I hope you enjoy this feta dressing recipe!

Low Carb Yogurt

Some keto eaters might be skeptical when it comes to yogurt. Many flavored yogurts are filled with carbs and added sugars. However, there are low carb yogurts that you can find at the grocery store that are totally keto-friendly! You should watch out for any yogurt that claims they are “low-fat.” Most “low-fat” yogurts replace the milkfat with sugar to sweeten up the flavor, which cancels out any benefit of removing the milkfat in the first place. For this recipe, I used Two Good plain yogurt, which only has 2g of sugar, but any low carb plain yogurt (or even low carb Greek yogurt) will do.

This keto salad dressing recipe makes 12 oz. I figure there are 2 tablespoons in a serving so each serving of this creamy feta dressing is 0.7 grams net carbs.

Is Feta Cheese Keto?

Yes, feta is keto approved and it is delicious as a salad dressing! To ensure the most flavorful, keto friendly feta dressing possible, I recommend you buy a block of feta rather than the pre-crumbled cheese. Think about it: the feta is crumbled, packaged and shipped. Then, it sits on the shelf for a while. In that time, it loses a lot of moisture — and that is what makes feta so creamy. So, get your feta packed in Brine. You will thank me later!

Storage

The recipe here tends to thicken as the days go by, as refrigerators can dehydrate a bit, but you can add in a little extra cream or nut milk and stir to get it back to the consistency you prefer to spread or dip. Your homemade feta dressing will keep for up to a week, so use it up quick. Although, I am quite sure you will have no problem doing so because you will want to throw this tangy and savory keto feta dressing on any snacks you can get your hands on.
