Marinated Feta with Kalamata Olives

It’s great to have olives back at the Market  and what a great recipe to celebrate their return.  First stop is The Cheese People for your feta and next our farm stand vendors for the garlic and peppers.  Last stop is  Mavra’s Greek Oil for those kalamata olives, oil and balsamic vinegars.  Mavra will be happy to give you tips on how to make this recipe Farmers Market style.

 Ingredients:

  •  lb feta cheese, cut into large cubes 1

  • 1 cup kalamata olives, pitted (not necessary but nice - leaving the pits in is more authentic - just warn guests)

  • 1/2 cup olive oil

  • 1 small onion, diced

  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic

  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

  • 2 teaspoons fresh oregano
