Best Greek Dips

Tirokafteri

It’s the second most famous dip after Tzatziki. Prepare this creamy Greek dipping sauce with a combination of feta cheese, milk or yogurt, hot peppers, olive oil, and vinegar. Great for any occasion, tirokafteri is the perfect dip or spread with any mezze or cheese platter.

Taramosalata

The Greek dip, Taramosalata consists primarily of mashed potatoes or bread, combined with lemon juice, olive oil, and fish roe. The dip can be best consumed when part of a meze dish or as an appetiser. It has a smooth and creamy texture which makes it the perfect accompany to pitta and breads.

Tzatziki

Tzatziki is a Greek dip consisting of yogurt, cucumbers, garlic, herbs and spices such as dill, mint, or parsley. This dip is usually best served cold with meat dishes and can be enjoyed as a simple dip. For example. with dishes such as gyros and souvlaki,  you will find that Tzatziki is the popular choice to serve it with. Some people will enjoy this dip with a portion of  pita bread as a starter or the first course of a large meal.

Skordalia

Skordalia is a tasty Greek-style garlic dip that has a thick base of either bread or mashed potatoes. This flavourful dip also combines olive oil, vinegar, raw garlic, and almonds to the mix. Traditionally Skordalia is served as a spread or dip and can be eaten at room temperature or enjoyed slightly chilled. We recommend pairing this dip with fresh, warm pita bread and due to the intense garlic flavours, skordalia makes a great choice when served as an accompaniment to fish or vegetable dishes.

Melitzanosalata

This classic Greek dip combines grilled eggplant, garlic, and olive oil that transforms into a creamy dip.  Melitzanosalata makes a great addition to a meze, a traditional meal comprised of a selection of small dishes. This simple but versatile dip is a great dip you can customise with additional ingredients such as groundnuts, cheese, vegetables, fresh herbs and spices to give the recipe a little unique twist. The dip is generally garnished with parsley and a light drizzle of olive oil, paired with a crispy, rustic bread.
