This easy recipe is loaded with delicious Mediterranean flavors. It serves as a great hors d'oeuvre or snack. It's also great for picnics!
I like to serve this recipe with my Pan-Grilled Pita Wedges and assorted olives.
8 ounces feta cheese, cut into bite-size cubes
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 small clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (preferably Italian flat-leaf parsley)
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
Small dash of dried crushed red pepper flakes
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste Place the feta cubes in a medium-size bowl. Set aside.
In a smaller bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients to create the marinade.
Pour the marinade over the feta, and toss gently to coat.
Cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight, tossing occasionally to redistribute the marinade.
Bring to room temperature before serving. (This will liquefy the olive oil, which may have solidified in the refrigerator.)
