Marinated Greek Feta Cheese

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.

It is great.My girlfriend wanted it for a friend she was working with that day. The manager of the Walgreens where I dropped it off asked for the recipe and made it twice as the first batch didn't last and his guest wanted more.

I LOVE feta. This recipe was the cornerstone for my entire Greek party. I had some placed out with crackers. I had some crumbled in the Greek salad, and I had some to top their souvlaki sandwiches on pita bread. It was a hit. Thanks for posting.
