Marinated Greek Feta Cheese

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by nannie jo

This is a easy recipe and it makes a great gift. Feta cheese is marinated in olive oil with several herbs (I use fresh out of my herb garden when I can). You can keep it in chunks or drain it and mash to serve as a spread. Put in a decorative jar or covered bowl and give with crisp pita chips for a delicious gift!

I wish I had have made more of this! I love feta, and this disappeared way too quickly. The fresh herbs I used were dill, thyme, basil and oregano. Thanks for posting this great recipe.
