Feta, my way!
I adore all kinds of cheeses. Creamy, hard, salty, blue, stinky..it doesn’t matter. I love them all. This recipe is just a simple, no fuss way to serve something before a meal when you’ve got some friends over or as a tapa when you’re on your own. It’s really inexpensive but fairly impressive and most importantly, it taste unreal. You can do it low budget and get cow’s milk feta or go all out and get a local sheep or goat feta when you feel like spoiling yourself or your friends. Saltspring Cheese Co. makes an amazing feta that you can get at most supermarkets. The feta in this picture is called “Macedonian Feta” and it’s available at Ottavio in Oak Bay. It’s a sheep’s milk feta that is incredibly creamy and not too briny. If you haven’t tried it yet then do it! So here is my recipe for Feta, my way.
1 block of Macedonian Feta – as much as you feel like you can eat in one go!
Handful of fresh chopped herbs – Oregano, parsley, thyme, rosemary
1 Red Chili Chopped and diced
zest of 1/2 lemon
Arrange feta on a small platter or dinner plate, sprinkle herbs, chili, lemon zest and pepper and drizzle with loads of olive oil. Serve with warm crusty bread.
