Marinated Persian Feta Cheese


Marinated Persian Feta Cheese is a wonderful accompaniment to a light lunch or breakfast.


  • 500g feta cheese
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 2 tbls fresh chopped basil
  • 3 sun-dried tomatoes, sliced finely
  • 1 tsp rock salt
  • olive oil


  1. Cut the feta cheese into cubes about 1cm square.
  2. Wash and sterilise a glass jar.
  3. Pack the feta cheese gently into the glass jar.
  4. Gently place on top the peppercorns, chopped basil, sun-dried tomatoes, saltĀ  and the rosemary.
  5. Pour sufficient olive oil over the cheese to entirely cover the ingredients.
  6. Seal and store in the refrigerator.
  7. Allow at least 2 weeks to allow the flavours to develop.

Additional Tips

I usually keep this oil mixture constantly adding more feta cheese when it is finished, and topping with more oil and herbs and spices. The perpetual marinating oil.
