DIY Marinated Feta

April 23, 2013

DIY marinated feta is a delicious addition to your antipasto platter.  Chunks of salty feta are marinated in fruity olive oil, herbs and garlic.  If you are a heat seeker, you can add chili flakes or sliced chili peppers.  You can pair the feta with olives and artichoke hearts.

Marinated Feta


12 ounces feta cheese (the softer kinds imported from Israel or France are best for this)
6 lrg garlic cloves, peeled
10 lrg sprigs fresh parsley
10 lrg leaves fresh basil
2 teaspoons fresh oregano
Cut feta cheese into 1/2 inch cubes. Place cheese into shallow non-reactive dish or plastic container. In food processor, finely chop parsley, basil and oregano.
With machine running, drop garlic cloves through feed tube. Continue processing until garlic and herbs are finely chopped, stopping to scrape down sides as necessary. Carefully mix garlic-herb mixture with feta cheese, coating the cheese well. Pour enough olive oil into dish to completely cover cheese mixture. Marinate 24 hours for up to one week and serve at room temperature.
