Marinated Feta Cheese

This is one of those MUST recipes which should get a try. It just needs several hours for flavour to build, however if you are not patient person, you can start to eat it right after preparing yet.
In my recipe I have chosen my favourite herbs such as rosemary, thyme, mint, but you can have your favourite herbs such as parsley, coriander, basil, spring onion.
Marinated feta cheese is just an elegant snack or light lunch or dinner onto pitta bread, baguette, toasted bread or crackers.

Method
Cut each block of feta cheese into small cubes.
In a big bowl, add  chopped onion(s), chopped herbs, chilli and lemon zest. Pour enough virgin olive oil and gently mix together.
Layer the cheese mixture in a clean jar. You can eat it right after preparing but if let to stay in the fridge for few hours, taste will develop and would be much better.

You can keep marinated feta cheese in the fridge for about 2 months. And yet any leftover olive oil in the jar can be used again for dressing salad
