Feta Cheese With Oregano in Olive Oil

12 Days of Edible Gifts: Marinated Feta Cheese With Oregano

Picture this: salty, creamy feta cheese, marinated in fruity olive oil, layered with onions, oregano, and peppercorns. It's basically a party in a jar. This feta cheese gift makes for the perfect unique hostess gift or holiday gift for a food-loving friend. The feta can be served with bread and olives as an appetizer or as a flavorful addition to salad. I brought a jar of this flavorful feta into the office with a fresh baguette, and it was all gone in less than 30 minutes. The bold flavors of the feta, oil, onions, and oregano complement each other deliciously.

Package your marinated feta in a small mason jar and tie a festive bow around it. Label your jar so people know what's inside and be prepared for them to ask for more next year. It's just that good. Do you want to know how to make it? Here's the recipe!
