  • 1 pound feta cheese, cubes
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons finely minced green bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons finely minced red bell pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley or 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon peppercorns
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. Whisk together all ingredients except cheese until well blended.
  2. Place cheese cubes in clean, dry glass jar with tight fitting lid. Pour marinade over cheese. Cover tightly and refrigerate several hours or even several days. Flip jar upside-down occasionally to make sure all cheese gets marinated.
  3. Serve with bread, toasted baguette slices, crackers, fruit or vegetables if desired.
  4. Shake well before serving.

Cheese may be replenished in remaining marinade or vinaigrette dressing may be made by adding vinegar to jar.
