Recipes with Feta Cheese

Made from sheep and goat’s milk, feta adds creaminess, saltiness, and a crumbly texture to your dish. If you have a block of cheese, it’s pretty simple to crumble it yourself. Cut a slice and rinse off the brine and run it under cold water for about 10 seconds. Then, hand crumble or use a fork to break it into pieces. Of course, you can skip this step by buying crumbled feta.

For an extra flavor boost, crumble some marinated feta on top of your salad. Typically kept in a brine with herbs, spices and lemon zest, this feta will liven up any dish! For lighter feta-filled dishes, try a refreshing TikTok-inspired Feta and Tomato Rice or a Mint and Feta Rice Salad!
