Why do I like it?
The almond feta is tart, tangy and so similar to dairy feta cheese. There are so many uses for this cheese. As a spread on crackers, on pasta or just about anywhere you would use feta. It has a soft consistency so keep that in mind if you swap it for cubed or grated feta.
I was making salad one night and wanted to use the warm dates. I happened to have the almond feta in the fridge and decided to put the two together. Instead of dressing, I simply squeezed fresh lemon over the salad.
Any recipe notes or tweaks?
No changes on the date recipe, it is great as is!
I made a few adjustments to the almond feta:
Used a nut milk bag instead of triple layer cheesecloth.
Omitted the herb olive oil drizzle on the top.
Baked in a glass baking dish or large ramekin at 400 degrees for 25 minutes.
