Feta Fetish

I have a feta cheese fetish. I absolutely love it on everything from pizza to salads to sandwiches. I even eat it on enchiladas, fajitas and tacos in place of other cheeses. 

Originating in Greece, feta is a white soft cheese traditionally made of either 100% sheep milk or a combination of sheep and goat milk. American versions of feta can be made with sheep, goat or cow’s milk.

The cheese is formed into a “block” and often sold in salty brine. There are several varieties, categorized as either “firm” or “soft.”  The firmer varieties are tangier and crumble easier. Some varieties are soft enough to be spreadable. All varieties are truly unique.
