“Here is a cheese plate kicked up Armenian style. Love the combo of feta and mint together! Makes a great addition to a Middle Eastern brunch with plates of felafel, hummus,tomato/cucumber salad, and pita bread. A more typical Middle Eastern version of this marinade would actually use dried mint, and you can feel free to do that if you like. The flavor is quite different than fresh, but equally interesting. I wonder how this would taste with tofu? Direct from Blanche's Feast in the Middle East.”
