- 400 g Feta
- red pepper
- 2 - 3 tbsp olive oil
- 8 olives
MAKES: 2 servings
- Cut feta cheese into squares or 1/2 to 3/4 inch cubes and arrange on a serving platter or a large rectangular-shaped plate. As a rule of thumb, 400 grams of feta cheese (14 ounces) yield about 46 - 48 small squares. Rinse olives well under cold running water and then drain.
- Once arranged on a platter, sprinkle feta with red pepper to taste and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Add two whole Kalamata olives on each side of the plate to garnish.
- Serve as an appetizer with low-carb bruschettas or as a hearty side dish with your main course. Serve immediately and at room temperature.
