Feta Fetish? Quick Feta Dishes in Under 5 Minutes


Feta Pasta Salad
Barrila's new tiny pasta  (preferably whole grain, cooked al-dente), cucumbers, grape tomatoes, capers, Bulgarian feta, basil, Italian parsley, fresh lemon juice

Quinoa and Feta

Quinoa, walnut, French feta, mint, fresh lemon juice, splash of EVOO.
Fab hot or cold and delish as a stuffing for peppers or zucchini

Cucumber and Feta Salad                            Cucumber, slow cooked garbanzo beans, red and gold grape tomatoes, Bulgarian feta, dill, fresh lemon juice.

Make it a main dish: Pescatarians may add tuna or shrimp, carnivores will luv this with grilled chicken, vegetarians make it a main dish with hard cooked eggs.                                                

Excellent as a side salad,  or use as a fab multgrain wrap or fresh pita filling
My personal favorite: Avocado, heirloom tomato, red onion, Greek feta, capers, oregano, fresh lemon juice and cracked pepper.

Feta is such a great cheese! I love the Bulgarian variety, so smooth and creamy yet still crumbles nicely. Thanks for all these great dishes, can't wait to try a few :)

Hi Tricia,

thanks for stopping by ;)
my current favorite is Israeli Feta and like all Feta it's a naturally lower fat cheese
