Feta has a salty tangy flavour.
A classic Greek curd cheese dating back thousands of years. Feta makes for a deliciously simple lunch or antipasto when you serve it up with fresh bread and olives. It also works wonders sprinkled on your pizza or mashed potatoes.
Feta is used with nearly every meal in Greece at any time of the day but many recommend eating feta on its own with just bread and olives, this is considered a meal in Greece. Other options of using Feta would be on pizza or sprinkle some feta over mashed potatoes or baked potatoes. Another very common way of using feta is in a salad.
