Feta cheese is a wonderful cheese used in a variety of recipes. Tiffani Thiessen makes it even better with this recipe for lemon Feta.

Thiessen states, “Feta is definitely one of my top cheese choices. By whipping it with lemon, garlic, and mint, I not only get a lovely, fresh addition to toasted baguette slices or breadsticks, but an excuse to eat Feta by the spoonful.”
