Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 1 cup


  • 1/4 cup homemade or store-bought mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup whole milk I use raw
  • 1/2 cup plain whole milk yogurt or sour cream
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt or more, to taste
  • 1 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic pressed or very finely minced
  • 1 tsp very finely minced shallot red onion would be a good substitute
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese


  • In a small bowl, whisk all ingredients except feta cheese.
  • Stir in the crumbled feta.
  • Serve immediately or store in fridge until ready to use.


  • Use this dressing drizzled over salad, as a dip for potato wedges or over grilled veggies
  • Use the highest quality feta cheese possible, it really does make a difference to the end result
  • The dressing can be stored in the fridge for 1-2 days, do not freeze
  • This recipe will thicken in the refrigerator. Bring it out about 10 minutes prior to serving to return it to a pourable consistency.
  • Sour cream or creme fraiche also works well instead of yogurt
  • Red onion would also work well instead of shallot just make sure to chop it very finely
