Htipiti or Xthipiti or Chtipiti

This dip is light, fluffy, cheesy, delicious and comforting, or at least for me. My yaya (grandma) would whip this up in no time and it goes with everything. But my absolute favorite pairing is with yaya’s Fries, she fries in olive oil which gives the potatoes a slight sweet aftertaste and the saltiness of this dip makes a perfect combination.

Htipiti in Greek means beaten or Whipped.

Normally we use a mortar and pestle to make this dip.

Which means all your anger can go into beating the feta cheese. But all jokes aside this deliciously light fluffy cheese dip does not taste the same if you add it to a blender.

I understand we are mostly in a hurry and don't have time to spend 10-15 min on a dip alone but if you do find the time it is definitely worth it.

Even though I am telling you to do it the hard way, my yaya, whose recipe this is, uses a blender. In her defense she's 85 years old and does not have the strength anymore.

Enjoy this delicious little dip!
