I found this simple, super-quick-to-make recipe for Marinated Greek Feta in the November 2005 issue of the Australian magazine 'Super Food Ideas'. It was one of several recipes for entertaining guests with a Greek banquet. I have posted it for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. The preparation time does not include the overnight chilling time.
- Cut the feta cheese into 2cm cubes and place them in a shallow, ceramic dish. Combine the oil, pepper, oregano and bay leaf in a jug, pour this over the feta and cover and refrigerate overnight (or longer if time permits).
- Serve the feta on a mezze platter with olives, skordalia (recipe posted separately) and crusty bread.
- Note: Refrigeration makes oil "cloudy". If you remove the marinated feta from the refrigerator 1 hour before serving, the "cloudiness" will disperse, and the oil will be clear.
