Yiayia-Approved @ATHENOS Feta Recipes + GivAway (3 winners)

Yiayia’s one opinionated Greek grandmother. She disapproves of just about everything in your life, especially your summer activities. Luckily, Yiayia approves of one thing: ATHENOS feta cheese.

If you’re looking to feature delicious summer recipes  or planning a summer party, look no further than ATHENOS feta cheese, made the “Greek way.” These versatile, simple recipes are sure to delight your guests and taste buds…Yiayia insists!  With the Holiday weekend coming up, get Greek and get inspired with these recipes

·      Mediterranean-Herbed Scallops – This dish will surprise even the biggest foodies as it takes you straight to the Greek isles in just about 20 minutes.
·      Refreshing Watermelon Salad – Discover the versatility of ATHENOS feta cheese with this refreshing and uniquely wonderful treat that won’t break the scale.
·      Greek Isles Pasta Salad – Think pasta salad is boring?  Think again as the whole family will be asking for seconds of this flavorful and easy-to-make twist on the traditional version. 
While on the Atheno's Facebook page I spied a recipe for BBQ Chicken Pizza with Feta.  Can I say amazing!!! Yiayia knows her Feta and recipes!  The only thing we changed was instead of baking in the oven, we used the grill!  Kind of gave it a brick oven type feel to the pizza!  I can not wait to go to the store and get more feta to make this again!

Another great recipe is a Greek Salad!
  • 1 small Romaine lettuce, torn into pieces
  • 3 Tomatoes, cut up into chunks
  • 1 Onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 Green pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 Cucumber, peeled & sliced
  • 1 cup Greek Kalamata Olives
  • ATHENOS feta cheese

  • 1/4 cup Greek extra virgin Olive oil
  • 2 tbs Red wine Vinegar
  • 1 pinch Oregano
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste
Chill all vegetables, olives and cheese. Combine dressing ingredients. When ready to serve, toss all vegetables and olives. Top with cheese and serve with dressing.
