Marinated Feta Cheese

Briny and tangy Feta Cheese - a rich-flavored cheese that brings plain (boring) salads to life.  See how this simple tomato and cucumber salad is brought alive when feta cheese is crumbled over (try Tomato Cucumber Feta Cheese Salad). Personally, no salad dressing is necessary when there is feta cheese. How about complementing sweet and juicy with salty - the harmony one can enjoy in this Watermelon with Feta Cheese.

Today, this Marinated Feta Cheese transforms feta cheese to extra-ordinary, and ultra-flavorful! Marinated feta cheese can be enjoyed just like how you would use feta cheese - as salad-toppers, salad flavor-enhancers, cracker accompaniments etc.

The "flavored" oil that marinates the cheese can also be used as salad dressing, so nothing in the jar comes to waste.

Layer the jar with cheese, herbs and pepper. Add EVOO till cheese and herbs are submerged in oil. Cover/seal the jar with a lid and refrigerate overnight. When properly stored, marinated feta cheese can be kept in the fridge for 2- 3 weeks.
