Feel free to use whichever herbs you prefer. Our first choice is usually spearmint, however it's nice to change it up every once in a while.

  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • zest 1 medium lemon
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint , oregano, basil leaves, parsley or dill, chopped (reserve a few whole leaves for garnish)
  • 4 ounces feta cheese (approximately)
