  • 8 oz feta cheese chunk
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 lemons juiced & zest
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 4 tablespoon fresh parsley leaves
  • Pita wedges


  • To a resealable container, add feta cheese chunk.
  • To the top of the feta, add olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, red pepper flakes, and herbs. Allow cheese to marinate in the refrigerator for 24-48 hours. If time allows, flip feta chunk every few hours so it soaks in the flavor evenly on both sides.
  • To serve, slice the chunk into thin pieces. Place cheese on a serving board or plate. Drizzle some of the leftover herbs and olive oil on top. Serve with toasted pita wedges or raw veggies.


This marinated feta is best once it has sat for 48 hours. However, 24 hours of marinating time will work as well.
