Marinated Feta with Kalamata Olives

READY IN: 5mins
Top Review by Jangomango

Fabulous, Evelyn. I must say, I started it in slight despair, having got a whole tub of pitted kalamatas which turned out to be a little bitter. So, I was looking for a disguise. It was way better than I ever expected, and I'd even use the same olives again.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb feta cheese, cut into large cubes
  • 1 cup kalamata olive, pitted (not necessary but nice - leaving the pits in is more authentic - just warn guests)
  • 2 roasted red peppers, cut into strips
  • 12 cup olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons fresh oregano
  • salt and pepper
  • lemon juice (always fresh!)


  1. Combine the peppers, feta and olives in a large bowl.
  2. Add the olive oil and toss gently.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and toss gently again.
  4. Adjust seasonings, cover and chill atleast 5 hours before serving.
