Herbs play an important role in the Greek Cuisine, and fresh is always best! The four Greek herbs to plant in your garden are oregano, parsley, dill, and mint. I wanted a quick appetizer, so I reached out to these herbs in my garden and a cube of feta.  These colorful balls can be prepared ahead of time, wrapped and refrigerated, and dipped in the herbs before serving. The balls can also be skewered for a festive presentation. Serve these with fresh berries, melon slices, or  your favorite vinaigrette.
