I have a block of amazing Israeli feta cheese.
So good as a snack but what else do you recommend doing with it??

A lot of possibilities. With some salad, on top of baked salmon, mixed with ground beef for a feta burger, mix in with red beans and rice and kielbasa or another sausage, and I've even added it when having spaghetti and some kalamata olives. Another option is add it to some cooked rice. Or add it as a pizza topping too. And I forgot about on top of vegtables as chakraz said.

Spinach Feta Turkey Burgers, don't use fresh spinach, thaw frozen spinach squeeze out excess moisture or the burgers are dry. Onion rolls and top the burger with thin sliced red onion, fresh spinach and thick, homemade tzatziki

here's what I did with the first half...

Salad
fresh tomatoes, wedged
avocado, cubed
purple onion, chopped fine
fresh basil leaves
feta, cubed (ish)
Made a Greek dressing with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, dijon mustard
added about a cup of cooked calico quinoa

Yummy and satisfying. Would have put some cooked chicken or shrimp in it if I had some....

Thanks for all the tips - here, PMs and emails. You guys are the BEST!!! Mrs. BGR

May I ask where you purchased it? I love feta! You can pm me if you prefer.

A little more hassle is spanakopita, spinach and cheese pie. You’ll need spinach and phyllo which most local markets have in the freezer case. Saute the spinach with a little onion, let cool, add crumbled feta and then layer with phyllo (liberally brushed with melted butter.) Bake at 350 for maybe 35 minutes. Yum yum!

The feta came from Costco. Last fall they sampled the Israeli feta and I bought it then. LOVED it but it wasn't there the next time we returned. :O(
Last week, I found it again at the SW Costco and grabbed some. It is the best I have ever eaten.

Spanakopita used to be a favorite, but not so much after I was diagnosed with Celiac disease.

Just saw this post. Lots of great suggestions!

When my garden is in full production, I'm always looking for new zucchini dishes. Many years ago I came up with this simple dish using all garden fresh ingredients plus feta cheese. I look forward to it every summer.

I don't have a name for it. In my mind I just refer to it as zukes w/feta

1. Sauteed zucchini (sliced or diced, but made into "noodles" would be good too) with oil/butter/ghee (whatever you prefer) for a minute or two
2. Add garlic and Itailian herbs (I usually use garden fresh, whatever I have).
3. Add a few cherry tomatoes sliced into halves and saute 1 more minute
4. Remove from heat and toss with lots of crumbled feta cheese and fresh chopped basil

Optional garnishes: toasted pine nuts or toasted walnuts, or pesto, or chopped olives, or a squeeze of fresh lemon, etc.


Also I have to mention:
Grilled figs then stuffed with feta and a balsamic vinegar reduction drizzled on top!
Orange zest garnish is nice.
