Sliced Feta With Oregano And Olive Oil

The very first Greek dish I’d ever had.

As a little kid, I remember olives and cheese being in my house at all times.

One specific memory is during Thanksgiving. I would put olives on each one of my fingers and run around the house eating them (my parents use to get Kalamata olives without the pit in fear that I would choke). As a matter of fact, every Thanksgiving I think of the times when I was little and did that. I don’t do it any longer, but rest assure–I’m always tempted.

Fast forward to today, I now serve this when hosting people, because it’s easy and enables me to focus more on the main dish.

It’s easy in the sense that if you’ve cook a Greek dish before, chances are you already have the needed ingredients on hand: olive oil, oregano, feta, olives.

Throw that on a plate–bam! You’ve got yourself a traditional Greek appetizer (meze). There is no cooking and it literally takes minutes  to make.

So go ahead, create this simple Greek dish and make your dinner table look like an authentic Greek Taverna. Also, be sure to check out our other Greek appetizer recipes!

PS. Funny fact, in Greek, “feta” means slice and has nothing to do with a specific cheese.

  1. I made this the day after Christmas as a snack for my aunt and grandmother visiting. It was perfect and our power happened to go out so it was great to have something delicious without needing a stove.

  2. Just had this as an appetizer in a Greek restaurant. Loved it so much had to purchase the block of feta and black olives. Thanks for the recipe I wasn’t sure what herb was used. I will be having this again tonight.
