Just like shop-bought marinated feta. The feta keeps for three weeks in a jar as long as the marinade covers it. Serve with salads, as part of an entree or as finger food.

Only one criticism. You won't be able to cover the amount of feta cheese called for in the recipe with the olive oil mixture. I found that about half of the feta cheese works. We love marinated feta cheese on salads, and this one does have a kick to it. It was tasty served over some ripe tomato slices, but I definitely can see incorporating this into some of my Mexican dishes, but don't see it on a delicate/tender greens salad (but that's a personal preference). - 04 May 2013
