MEDITERRANEAN APPETIZER SPREAD (Adapted from afoodcentriclife)

This Mediterranean-inspired appetizer tray is easy to assemble and has something for everyone to nibble before dinner. The goat feta cheese takes just a few minutes and can be served with crackers or thinly sliced baguette.

6-8 ounces of raw goat milk feta (the best feta you can find)
2 TBSP of olive oil
1-2 TBSP of fresh herbs, I used parsley, oregano and thyme
A sprinkle of red pepper flakes (optional)
A selection of rice crackers, wheat crackers or thinly sliced baguette
6 ounces of thinly sliced Prosciutto or Speck (smoked Prosciutto)
1 jar of good marinated Mediterranean olives
a small bowl of almonds
1 large bag or bunch of grapes, washed and clipped into small clusters

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Place feta in a baking dish just big enough to hold the cheese. Drizzle with olive oil, herbs, and red pepper.

Bake for about 15 minutes or until the cheese is hot. It won’t really melt but will get soft.
While the cheese is baking, arrange all of your other ingredients on a platter or tray. When the cheese is done, place in a small dish, pour the olive oil from the dish (or a little extra) and herbs over the top and serve.
