There are always shit tons of olives and about 4 pieces of feta! Why god why?

I share your pain, OP. it's rubbish. I just mix my own now. You should too.

I agree completely!

puds11isNAUGHTYnotNAICE Sun 23-Feb-14 20:26:28

I think I'll start otherwise I'm going to be sad every time I buy them. I love the feta but it becomes like a precious stone due to it's rarity grin

Make your own.

Oh I love olives and feta. Only black olives though, can't get on with green ones. Either way I agree if you buy it premixed it's rubbish. I just buy a block of feta then some olives from the deli counter, then you don't get an uneven mix and you can eat both together. drools

I'm going to start doing that Mrs, but I think the feta/olive ratio will do the other way when I do it grin

And sometimes you get random bits of red pepper lobbed in there too, just so as to dilute the feta ratio further. Is feta really that rare a beast? Feta farming may be the way to go.

Definitely do it yourself, then you can put garlic in and sundried tomatoes too!

Buy the olive and feta mix and an extra block of feta to chop up and add.

I like edwinbear 's suggestion.

Garlic? Adding garlic? But then the feta would be all... garlicky! shock

I used to think the opposite, forcing myself to eat the seemingly endless lumps of tasteless feta contaminating the olives. Til I realised I could just buy a tub of olives! Sorry not much help to your thread I know.

Buy jar, eat, then mix your own and use the nice oil and jar :-)

No that nice marinated garlic clove thingy you sometimes get a few of in olive mixes, it's not strong tasting at all and you can buy big packs of it from ethnic type shops.

Oooh I'm not keen on feta (too salty and tastes a bit goaty confused ) but I love halloumi with olives.

puds11isNAUGHTYnotNAICE Sun 23-Feb-14 21:35:11

Ooh I like the reusing of the oil idea smile

I feel short changed when feta's been added, pure olives is the way forward!

Nocomet Sun 23-Feb-14 22:29:50

Fine by me, I don't much like Feta, DH does, there is usually enough feta for one.

Yes, yes! to Whois!
I didn't mean raw garlic, but the more gentle tasting marinated cloves of garlic you can buy from the olive stall at the market.
