Growing up in a Greek household, one of the staples on our table was feta. It had to be the best quality feta we could afford and would enhance the flavour of pretty much every meal we cooked.
On our recent visit to Greece, we visited a small tavern in the mountains of Crete and they served us some marinated feta…and well, it was one of those glorious foodie wow moments!
Coming back home it was one of the things I was most excited about recreating. To say this feta has become a favourite recipe at our place is no understatement – my children love it for afternoon tea smeared on fresh bread or quality crackers, it is amazing in sandwiches with cold meats or grilled veggies and it is beyond delicious served alongside traditional meat dishes such as roasts or grilled steaks or souvlakia.
With all ingredients readily available, I’m sure this marinated feta will be on repeat throughout the year. The fact that all it takes is 10 minutes prep time and then just a little patience to allow the flavours to infuse into the feta, makes it an ideal dish to meal prep on a Sunday and then enjoy throughout the week…and that my friends is my take on a game changer!
