Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place a layer of olives, sage, garlic, chile pepper, rosemary, bell pepper, sesame-ginger seasoning, pepperoncini pepper, and oregano into the bottom of a container. Add a layer of feta cheese. Repeat layering with remaining ingredients.

  • Pour olive oil into the container to cover feta mixture completely. Cover and refrigerate until serving.

Cook's Notes:

Sometimes when you buy feta cheese, it happens to be very salty; that's the time when I marinate it. I use this marinated feta as a main ingredient for Greek salad or just topping on toasted baguettes, similar to bruschetta. My friends and family like it.

You can use a green or yellow bell pepper instead of red, green olives instead of black, and rapeseed oil instead of olive oil, if desired.
