100gr drained green olives

3 garlic cloves

1 lemon

½ cup Saint George Extra Virgin Olive Oil

½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

85gr feta

Crusty bread (for serving)


Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°. Drain the green olives and place on a cutting board. Lightly smash with the heel of your hand just to break apart skin and flatten slightly.

Step 2

Smash 3 garlic cloves and peel.

Step 3

Using a vegetable peeler, remove peel from 1 lemon in long wide strips.

Step 4

Cook lemon peel, olives, garlic, ½ cup Saint George Olive Oil, and ½ tsp. red pepper in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, swirling occasionally, until garlic is sizzling and golden around the edges, 5–7 minutes.

Step 5

Meanwhile, crumble the Feta cheese into a shallow serving bowl.

Step 6

Pour oil mixture over feta. Let sit at least 10 minutes and up to 1 hour.

Step 7

Meanwhile, tear bread into large pieces and place in oven directly on rack. Bake until craggy edges are golden, 5–8 minutes. Serve with marinated feta and olives for dipping.
