mediterranean baked feta

i've been feeling under the weather all week.
but you know what? i went to a dinner party a couple of nights ago,
where i stayed up late laughing with great friends.
laughter is truly the best medicine :)
recipe via smitten kitchen
modifications by me
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/3 cup chopped, pitted kalmata olives
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
1 tablespoons finely-chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon fresh basil
1 teaspoon olive oil
freshly ground black pepper
4-ounce block feta
crackers, pita chips, or crostini, for dipping
1. preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. in a bowl, mix the tomatoes, olives, onion, garlic,
parsley, oregano, olive oil and a few grinds of pepper.

3. place the block of feta in the middle of your dish.
(i used a baking pan covered in foil)
pile the tomato mixture on top of the feta. bake for 15 minutes.

4. the feta will not melt, just warm and soften.
serve with crackers; eat immediately.

this was definitely my kind of appetizer!
it was easy and delicious!
i would have actually halved the amount of cheese, or doubled
the amount of toppings to improve the cheese to goodies ratio.
but that's just me :)
