Fried feta rolls
Feta cheese is a mainstay in Mediterranean cuisine.
It’s usually used as a topping, but did you know it’s great as a crispy snack too?

Chicken pitas not filling enough for you?
A serving of this orzo salad on the side is what you need.

The marinade is made of herbs, orange juice, and zest, infusing your olives and feta with delectable flavors.
The most challenging part in making these Greek marinated olives and feta is playing the waiting game – you have to wait for at least two hours to let the flavors meld and develop.
