In making salads that the whole family embraces, I find that creamy salad dressings go a long way. My kids love buttermilk ranch and Caesar, and every time I make this creamy feta dressing, my normally salad-averse husband suggests that I bottle it up and sell it. (He would love to retire and play golf every day, so he has lots of great ideas for me 😉.) A little tangy, a little salty, and a whole lot delicious, this dressing is basically a “drizzle-able” version of my popular creamy whipped feta dip. It’s excellent over any combination of heirloom tomatoes, bell peppers, cukes, olives, fresh herbs, and (yes) more feta.
Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor fitted with the steel blade.
Process until well-blended and creamy.
Taste and adjust seasoning, if necessary. Serve immediately or chill until ready to serve.

Creamy Feta Dressing
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise, best quality such as Hellmann's or Duke's
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 6 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
- 2 tablespoons milk (skim, low fat or whole)
- 1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
- 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Process until well-blended and creamy. Taste and adjust seasoning, if necessary. Serve immediately or chill until ready to serve.
- Make Ahead: This dressing will keep nicely in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. However, it will thicken up quite a bit in the fridge; before serving, whisk well then add a bit of milk, little by little, to thin to desired consistency.
