Traditional marinated feta comes soaked in olive oil. The problem is this is costly and often it’s hard to get the feta flavor through all that oil. Preparing it myself, I can cut the cost by 2/3, and have a fresh tasting platter my guests truly enjoy.



  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried herbs de Provence
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 3 (8 ounce) packages of Greek feta, drained
  • 1/2 cup green Greek olives with pits
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Combine the herbs and red pepper flakes in a small bowl. Lay the feta slices overlapping on a serving plate.
  2. Sprinkle the feta with the entire herb mixture. Add the olives and tomatoes around the feta slices. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper.
  3. Serve at room temperature.
  4. Refrigerate any leftovers for up to two weeks.
