It's great on crackers, melts into warm crispy bread, tops a salad, makes an instant creamy sauce on hot veggies, can be mixed into mashed red potatoes and more.
The briny soft cheese, salty olives and seasoning adds layers of flavors and makes just about anything taste amazing.
Because it's so simple your ingredients matter. Use your favorite Feta, most flavorful olives and best olive oil.
Feta Kalmata Cheese Spread
14 ounces Feta in Brine
6 to 8 Kalmata Olives, pitted and chopped
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Oil Oil
1 teaspoon Organic Oregano, dried
Dash Organic Garlic Powder
Dash Black Pepper
Put all ingredients into a large bowl and mashed. Use right away, but the flavor improves as it mellows.
Tonight I'll be spreading it over some delicious focaccia.
Next time I make it I will likely add sun-dried tomatoes and some chopped artichoke hearts. I think that spreading that combination over a partially baked pizza crust would be awesome.
