Feta Cheese...

Feta Cheese

  • Feta (Greekφέτα) is a brined curd cheese traditionally made in Greece.
  • Feta is an aged crumbly cheese, commonly produced in blocks, and has a slightly grainy texture. 
  • It is made from the Goat Milk.
  • It is used as a table cheese, as well as in salads (e.g the Greek salad), pastries and in baking, notably in the popular phyllo-based dishes spanakopita ("spinach pie") and tyropita ("cheese pie") and combined with olive oil and vegetables.
  •  It can also be served cooked or grilled, as part of a sandwich or as a salty alternative to other cheeses in a variety of dishes.
  • It is basically used in Mediterranean salads.
  • It can be bought from any supermarkets.

Recipes that I used it are:

  • Greek Salad
  • Pear and Walnut Salad
