Add these Marinated Olives & Feta to the menu the next time you host! They’re such a chic, light appetizer that you can prep the day before (they taste even better that way actually!). I always use @Mezzetta Pitted Italian Castelvetrano Olives because they’re always so crisp with a nice buttery finish, but truly any olives work!!
Marinated Olives & Feta
- 1 jar 8 oz Mezzetta® Pitted Italian Castelvetrano Olives
- 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 3-4 garlic cloves peeled and smashed
- 1 lemon zested
- 2 tbsp fresh dill
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp red chili flakes
- 3 oz feta cheese
Drain the olives and place in a bowl.
Heat the olive oil over medium-low heat in a saucepan and add the garlic, lemon zest, dill, oregano, and chili flakes. Turn the heat to low and stir occasionally for about 10 minutes.
Remove the garlic cloves and any large pieces of dill.
Pour the mixture over the olives and stir in the feta. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes before enjoying!
