Feta Marinated with Herbs and Chilli



A cost effective starter that tastes as delightful as it looks and takes minutes to prepare. You could also make this just by serving a whole block of feta, but cutting it into cubes makes it easier to serve and also you get a better feta/olive oil/herb ratio with every bite!

Ingredients

  • 8 oz / 250 g feta cheese , preferably Danish or another creamy type (see notes)
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin oil
  • 2 garlic cloves , peeled
  • 2 tbsp herbs , finely chopped. (I used parsley and thyme leaves)
  • 1 birds eye chilli , finely chopped (or any fresh red chilli of choice)
  • 1//4 tsp lemon rind , finely grated
  • Black pepper


Instructions

  1. Infuse olive oil with garlic (optional): use the side of your knife to smash the garlic cloves and combine with the olive oil. Cover, refrigerate and leave for as long as possible - a few hours or preferably overnight.
  2. If you do not have the time to do Step 1, just mince 1 garlic clove (small) and stir into the olive oil.
