Feta is a brined curd white cheese that is soft crumbly and usually made from sheep or goat’s milk. This cheese goes with salads and toppings for other foods. The salty and crumbly texture helps bring out other flavors of the dish.
Feta originated in Greece, now it’s also made in different parts of the world with less stringent policies on the mix of goat and sheep milk.
