Easy Marinated Feta


I always make my own marinated feta. If you like, you can also add garlic, but my family doesn't like garlic so we prefer this simple variation.

Prep Time:

  • 1 pound feta cheese, cubed

  • 1 chile pepper

  • 1 tablespoon herbes de Provence

  • 1 pinch lemon zest

  • 1 cup olive oil, or as needed


  1. Place feta cheese in a glass jar. Add chile pepper, herbes de Provence, and lemon zest. Fill jar with olive oil so feta is completely covered and seal.

  2. Marinate in a cool place, but not in the refrigerator, for 3 to 4 days. Remove chile pepper before serving.
