Before you shake your head at this flavor combination, hear me out. Fresh mint and feta cheese are made for each other. Many of my friends have scoffed at the thought but were easily converted once they had the chance to try them out. Enveloped by a warm piece of pita, the salty cheese is woken up by the bright, aromatic flavor of the mint leaves. Finish it off with a drizzle of fruity extra-virgin olive oil and enjoy it for lunch or as a snack.
