Feta: Main Image

Preparation, Uses, & Tips

The intense flavor of feta has an exceptional appeal in salads when combined with olives, tomatoes, and a variety of greens, including fresh spinach. It is also a distinctive addition to a Mediterranean-style antipasti tray along with sliced onion, cucumber, and hot pickled peppers. A dramatic dish of this kind can be made by marinating feta overnight in extra virgin olive oil, fresh herbs, garlic, and chile peppers. Feta is also used in baking, and in such savory pastries as spanakopita.
