A gorgeous and fast snack: feta cheese with cherry tomatoes

Often, I have a lust for a savoury snack, but instead of reaching for the packet of crisps, I'd rather do my own. I love cherry tomatoes and I love feta cheese. They are best friends and a light little something you can enjoy with a glass of white wine. Choose something stronger, dry, like a Sauvignon Blanc, for example or a Pinot Grigio, a Sancerre or Chablis. Chardonney, which is one of my favourites, might be a tad too fruity and they wouldn't compliment each other.
Of course you can also have a light red wine or rose, it's down to your taste.

It's a snack you can prepare easily and store in the fridge, so when have a visitor, you'll always have something to offer.

You need:

Feta cheese
Cherry tomatoes (if possible vine riped)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Tarragon (fresh if possible)
Thyme (fresh, if possible)

Dice the feta cheese and cut the tomatoes in quarters, chop the herbs and add, then drain it all in the Olive Oil. No salt needed, the feta is salty enough. You can add chili, it's up to you.

If you have it with wine, serve with slices French stick. Enjoy :-)

Mix all thoroughly and let it marinade. If you expect visitors, prepare at least an hour prior serving.
