Mediterranean Marinated Feta

Mediterranean Marinated Feta | A Firework in Progress
This quick and easy recipe for Mediterranean Marinated Feta is so easy to prepare and so versatile. You can eat with fresh or cooked veggies, low carb pitas, salads, meats, or even on its own. It’s so flavorful and it only gets better as it sits in your fridge. I used to go to Whole Foods to buy the marinated feta and olives by the pound, but since I hate olives, I’d try to scoop out as much as I could without olives. It was a hassle, and not to mention expensive. This recipe makes ten servings for about $5 (assuming you have the spices and oil in your pantry already).

1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried oregano

Crush the peppercorns with the side of a knife blade. This is important; they need to be crushed and not cracked from a mill or ground. This method allows the pepper to really burst with flavor and adds some great texture in the feta.

Mediterranean eating is really healthy and fresh. Olive oil, spices, and feta can be part of a very healthy diet, whether low carb, keto, or a regular diet. You can test out this recipe with other cheeses too, like goat or mozzarella. Switch up the spices too- try basil or parsley for a different flavor. This goes great with low carb pita bread, which you can make on your own or buy Joseph’s brand. I also love it on sauteed vegetables, like zucchini and squash and cherry tomatoes. Enjoy!
