These Feta Kasseri Cheese Ball are the bomb! One bite and you’re sold. The fact that there are three cheeses in these lovely bites, you will be asking for more. Adding freshly chopped herbs makes them more delicious and fresh tasting. 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.

Feta Cheese Balls with Herbs


Fresh leaves are used from my garden. Make sure no sprays are used on edible flowers and they are organic.


Here in my garden boxes I grow flat leaf parsley, eggplant, green peppers, and climbing green beans. You can use  herbs in so many dishes to heighten the flavor of any dish.

Organic edible flowers such as these nasturtiums, are added to many appetizers and salads.
