Feta cheese is made out of sheep's milk (occasionally with added goat's milk) and has a salty and tangy flavor that make it a favorite inside and outside of its home country, Greece. Although many other countries produce similar types of cheese, the name feta can only be used on the labels of Greek cheeses.

Feta is great in appetizers, side dishes, and as an ingredient in salads, main dishes, and savory pastries. Go far beyond the Greek salad and try using feta cheese in these wide-ranging recipes.
