Herbed Feta Recipe With Heirloom Tomatoes

Share this!

The seasons are changing here with the air noticeably warmer and the foliage slowly turning from brilliant green to brown. 

Which reminded me to share my favorite summer appetizer! 

I've been making some variation of this simple treat since I was a teenager. I often bring it to summer potlucks and it's a big hit. 

I'll call it Marinated Feta Delight.

But really it's just feta marinated with lemon juice, herbs and served with tomatoes. 

Herbed Feta Recipe with Heirloom Tomatoes

To make this herbed feta recipe you'll need:

  • 1 pound feta
  • 3-4 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh or 3 Tbsp dried thyme
  • 1/3 cup chives
  • 2-3 large heirloom tomatoes

optional: bread or crackers for serving. 

Directions for Herbed Feta Recipe

Crumble the feta into small pieces. Add the lemon juice, enough to wet all the cheese with it but not so much that it puddles on the bottom. Throw some lemon zest in the mix if you've got it. 

Add the herbs (go fresh if possible).

It's best if you can let this sit overnight, but I've served it right away and it's still good. 

When you are ready to serve, find some delicious mouth-watering heirloom tomatoes, slice them up, then arrange the marinated feta and tomatoes on a plate. Get extra fancy and sprinkle some fresh herbs over it all. 

Serve with bread or crackers if you wish.
