Remove the feta cheese from the pack and pat as dry as possible with kitchen towel. Press the flavors into it. Pack the cheese tightly into a jar and cover with olive oil. It will keep in the fridge for up to two months.
Tips: Don't use bought dried herbs, instead make your own by drying leftover fresh herbs on a baking sheet. Leave them somewhere warm; e.g. on top of your boiler, washing machine, or oven and they will dry within a week. Or put them in the oven at 200 to 225 degrees for 1 hour.
Uses: On a big plate, covered in fresh basil -- served with lots of other salads. As a cheese course, with crusty bread and fruit Don't throw away the oil -- use it in your dressing
