How To: Marinated Olives and Feta Cheese
These Marinated Olives and Feta Cheese are extremely good on salads, crostini, pizza or with some elegant appetizers.
The ones that you can buy at the grocery store are kinda expensive, so you can make them very easily at home, and cheaper. 🙂
- 250 g of feta cheese, cubed
- 50 g of olives
- 2 garlic cloves, peeled
- 3 dried tomatoes
- 1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary
- an airtight container
- extra virgin olive oil, to fill the jar all the way up
Wash the jar and let it dry completely. This way, the oil will not get moldy.
First, cut the feta cheese into little cubes and peel the garlic cloves.
Next, add little cubes of cheese into the jar, alternating with tomatoes, olives, garlic and fresh rosemary, until you finish adding every ingredient into the jar.
When you finished adding all your ingredients, fill the jar with extra virgin olive oil and close the lid to the jar. Keep the jar in the fridge. You can start consuming it after 2-3 days, but the longer it stays, more flavor it will have.
You can use these olives and feta cheese as a beautiful appetizer. They’re delicious and really easy to put together and way better than the ones from the supermarket.
I really encourage you to make these, you will totally love them.
