Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks: Kirkland Organic Feta from Greece
I wanted to do a happy dance in the aisle at Costco when I spotted this Kirkland Organic Feta from Greece, and now this is my favorite Feta! In this post I’m sharing about why I like this product so much, and some of my favorite recipes that use Feta.
You probably couldn’t help noticing that I’m an enthusiastic consumer of Feta Cheese! For years I’ve been buying the blocks of Feta at Costco and they have always had various brands of Feta that came in a block. But the 100% sheep’s milk Feta was always the type I liked most. Then recently I was walking through the huge SLC Costco and I spotted this Kirkland Organic Feta from Greece, a new Costco sheep’s milk Feta that has rocked my world! This post will talk about why I love particular Feta so much, and share some recipe ideas where I’d love to use it!
This Feta Cheese is a real Costco Bargain!
My apologies to those who don’t live near Costco, but for those who shop there I felt like I should alert you to this new Kirkland Organic Feta, because at $9.99 for nearly two pounds of creamy Greek sheep’s milk Feta, this is such a bargain! I’m lucky to live near The World’s Biggest Costco, but since this is a Kirkland product I am guessing that eventually most Costcos will be carrying it and hopefully you will soon be able to order it at Costco.com.
Why I love Sheep’s Milk Feta so much:
This organic Feta from Costco is 100% sheep’s milk Feta! All brands of Feta Cheese contain sheep’s milk, but some are made from a combination of sheep’s milk and goat’s milk. I find the pure sheep’s milk Feta to be milder and creamier than those which contain goat’s milk. And after I discovered this new Greek Feta at Costco I tried it out on my Greek friends Mary and Loretta, and they both declared it to be very good!
How do I keep such a big block of Feta good in the fridge?
This Feta comes in brine, and I found various sources online that says Feta refrigerated in brine will stay good for several months. But I might not buy such a big package of Feta if I didn’t have a FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer (affiliate link)! The Feta comes in four separate flat blocks, and I seal each inside a plastic bag with the FoodSaver, which will keep it good in the fridge for months! You can read more about why I love the FoodSaver if you’re not familiar with it.
Is Feta Cheese low in carbs?
This delicious Feta Cheese has less than one gram of carbs per serving, which certainly makes me love it even more! Check your package, but I’m sure every brand of Feta is going to be very low in carbs.
What do I love to make using Feta Cheese?
- I love salads with Feta Cheese, and my blog has so many of them that I picked My Top Ten Salads with Feta Cheese! If I had to choose out of those ten favorites, two salads I make regularly are Peperoncini Chopped Salad with Romaine, Peppers, and Feta and Broccoli Salad with Feta and Almonds. And of course, American Greek Salad with Lettuce is a salad I make over and over!
- If you want even more salad options, there’s also a bigger collection with more than 20 Low-Carb and Keto Salads with Feta Cheese. In this batch I especially love Low-Carb Greek Peperoncini Chicken Salad and Grilled Zucchini Greek Salad.
- For other recipe ideas that aren’t salads, check out my collection of Low-Carb and Keto Recipes with Feta Cheese where you’ll find recipes like Feta Cheese and Avocado Frittata, Greek Cauliflower Rice Bake, Easy Low-Carb Greek Chicken Bake, Easy Grilled Greek Zucchini, Greek Skillet Chicken, and many more that I make over and over!
You must also be a fellow fan of Feta cheese if you’ve made it to the end of this post. I’d love to hear in the comments about your favorite ways to eat it!
