A handful of fresh mint perks up this traditional salad loaded with lots of tomatoes, cucumber and tangy feta. Tote it to your next potluck – it’s good for feeding a crowd.
All feta is not created equal. There are many kinds, each with different flavours and textures. Look for these at the grocery store and cheese shop.
* Canadian Usually made from pasteurized cow’s milk. It has a firm texture and mild flavour. Canadian goat feta is creamier and has more flavour.
* Greek Traditionally made from sheep’s milk, which produces a stronger and creamier flavour. It’s sometimes mixed with goat’s milk.
* Bulgarian Less salty than traditional Greek feta, but still very creamy in both taste and texture.
* Macedonian Soft, creamy texture and mild, salty flavour.
