Sometimes (most times), simple is best. This appetizer/side dish/salad is fantastic with pita triangles. I’ve also put it on toast, on lettuce, and in omelettes. Using a serving dish with straight sides, like this ceramic tart pan, keeps the layers even. Viva, la feta!
Update: I found Za’atar seasoning at World Market!
Feta and Za’atar Appetizer
Greek extra virgin olive oil
3/4 lb. feta cheese (Bulgarian is nice and creamy)
2 diced Roma tomatoes
1 bunch scallions, chopped
8 oz. Kalamata olives, pitted and chopped
Pita bread cut into triangles
Method: Pour olive oil into bottom of dish to coat. Sprinkle half of the feta into the dish. Layer remaining ingredients. Sprinkle remaining feta over all, then pour more olive oil on top. Sprinkle liberally with Za’atar seasoning. Let salad sit a few hours in fridge for flavors to meld.
