This is very simple and easy appetizer (meze) that you can whip up in no time at all.
I don’t know what it is about these two, but basil and feta cheese go together so deliciously that one wonders if the herb was grown specifically for this combination.
What I truly love about this appetizer besides it’s simplicity, is the addition of olive oil and garlic to an already mouthwatering mix. These flavors all react and balance each other so nicely.
Enjoy and let me know what you think!
