Today’s recipe is so quick and easy to make and so delicious that you’ll want to have it on hand often. We really enjoy this Marinated Feta with Roasted Lemon and Dill in a big, generous Greek Salad for a Saturday lunch.

I make them all year round since the ingredients are always available in my grocery store. And, even though he’s a real meat and potatoes guy, BeeBop likes a good Greek salad especially when I amp it up with cubes of salami and feta.

You may be surprised by the roasted lemon slices in this recipe, but I’m telling you it’s worth doing. That little bit of char on the edges of the lemon slices adds a special something to the taste of the salty, tangy feta.

Then the dill and the crushed red pepper flakes work their magic into the mix and create a simply fantastic combination.

Not only do I use this marinated feta in salads, I also serve it crumbled on slices of toasted baguette with a little of the oil drizzled over as an appetizer.

Sometimes I include a few pitted kalamata olives just for good measure. So good! And when you’ve finished all the feta, you can strain the oil and use it to make fabulous salad dressings. Hope you enjoy this one. It’s a winner in my book.

How to Make Marinated Feta with Roasted Lemon and Dill:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Slice one of the lemons thinly, remove the seeds, and place the slices on a foil-lined baking sheet. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil.

Roast 10-12 minutes or until slightly charred on the edges. Let cool completely.

Cut the feta into about 1/2” chunks.

Adding the ingredients to a jar.

In a jar or small bowl, make two layers of feta, red pepper flakes, fresh dill, celery leaves, peppercorns, and roasted lemon slices.

Don’t pack it tightly, just loosely layer the ingredients in. The order doesn’t matter at all.

Squeeze the juice from half of the second lemon into the jar or bowl. Add enough olive oil to cover the contents. Chill for at least 8 hours before using.

    1. I don’t know exactly! I think I probably saw some roasted lemon slices somewhere online and when I started to make this recipe, that thought popped into my head and…voila. That’s how it usually happens anyway :-)
