This sauce would be good as a dip and as a salad dressing. For example, as an alternative to sour cream or mayonnaise, when you want something richer than sour cream, but also something lighter than mayonnaise.
In terms of consistency and texture, the whipped feta sauce resembles a fatty mayonnaise, or rather an aioli. Because there is quite a strong emphasis on the garlic flavor. But you can make the sauce less spicy and garlicky – simply reduce the amount of garlic to one clove, or eliminate it altogether.
This sauce, like tzatziki, goes great with fresh, baked and grilled vegetables.
