Marinated feta


This, my friends, was super tasty. I love serving (and eating!) nibbles and when Maria, Daniel and Otto came over for dinner when they were in town we had this wonderful feta with jamon from Mallorca (thank you vacuum packaging), buttery olives (also from Mallorca) and some nice olive oil to dip the bread in. Apart from a delicious start to the meal, as we were all starving, it was also quite easy to simultaneously eat this and play run after Otto, the toddler.


Marinated feta

1 whole proper feta (made form sheep’s milk) 

2-3 tbsp extra virgin olivolja

a few sprigs, rosemary

a few sprigs thyme

1/2 lemon, zest only, either use a grater or zester 

1/2-1 tsp chilli flakes pr Aleppo pepper

salt, black pepper

Place the feta in a shallow dish with edges. Add herbs, chilli, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Drizzle the olive oil on top. Turn the feta so both sides are in contact with the aromatic oil. Leave for a few minutes for the flavours to develop before serving.
