Marinated Feta Greek Cheese

Feta is one of the healthier cheese options and it pairs perfectly with oil and herbs.

You simply Marinade the cheese in oil and add some of your favorites flavors. Here are some ideas if you want to change the recipe:

  • Basil
  • Mint
  • Chili
  • Sundried Tomatoes
  • Olives
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Rosemary
  • Parsley

Note:? Steps one and two should be carried out at least one hour before making the rest of the recipe.
