Marinated Feta

PREP TIME: 10min

SERVES: 1 smaller jar


Feta cheese dates back thousands of years and, to this day, is still made by monks and shepherds in the Greek mountains. Make your own marinated feta cheese right at home! A simple recipe turns feta cheese into something extraordinary.


  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil

  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme, sage, oregano, marjoram, dill or any at your own preference)

  • 1 tsp black peppercorns

  • zest and juice from one lemon

  • zest and juice from one orange

  • pinch of red pepper flakes


  1. In a small bowl, combine the oil, herbs, pepper, red pepper flakes and lemon and orange zest and lemon juice.
  2. Layer the feta cubes and herbed oil into jars, making sure the feta is fully submerged. Marinate at room temperature for 3 or more hours (not more than 8 hours)
  3. Refrigerate any unused portion after one day.
  4. Keep the jars refrigerated and bring to room temperature when you want to serve it as the oil will congeal in the cold.
