  • ½ ib. large pitted Kalamata seasoned olives
  • ½ lb. to 1 lb. Helena feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil, lightly drizzle over feta cheese

Directions:

  1. Serve red wine at 60° Fahrenheit and remove the cheese from the refrigerator 30-60 minutes prior to serving (it is recommended to serve the wine and cheese at proper temperatures, so their flavors can emerge).

  4. Bite in a Kalamata olive, seedless grape while sipping on some wine. Repeat and enjoy!

Cheese serving tips

Place only the amount of cheese you will consume on your cheese platter.

Keep remaining cheese wrapped and refrigerated until use.

Allowed cheese to sit out at room temperature before serving (flavor tends to develop and cheese warms).
