- Feta (Greek: φέτα) 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
