Marinated Feta Cheese

For a printer friendly version of this recipe, click here.

Easy to put together, great on pita or slices of baguette, or even use in a salad. Use a creamy sheep or goat’s milk feta for the best flavour, also it spreads more readily. The cheese will keep up to 5 days in the fridge.  I like to serve this in the summer, but any time is the right time!
