INGREDIENTS

  • For Pickling
  • 3 cups Nuvos white balsamic vinegar traditional 18 year aged (or Champagne vinegar)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp coriander seeds
  • 2 tbsp mustard seeds
  • 1 medium shallot, sliced
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 4 sprigs cilantro
  • 2 lb feta, diced or crumbled

For Salad

  • 1 lb red pitted Cerignola olives (cut in half)
  • 1 lb fresh strawberries, calyx removed and quartered or cut in half (the way you prefer)
  • 1/4th cup Nuvos extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4th cup cilantro, chopped
  • 12 ounces baby spinach
  • Salt and white pepper

INSTRUCTIONS

1. To prepare the pickle, combine the vinegar, 3 cups of water, sugar, coriander seeds, mustard seeds, shallot, garlic, and cilantro in a small saucepan. Boil the liquid over medium-high heat, reduce to simmer, and cook for 5 minutes. Switch off the flame and let it cool completely.

2. Place the feta in a large mixing bowl or divide it between two jars. Pour the cool pickling liquid, we prepared earlier over the cheese. Feta should be completely submerged. Cover the feta and refrigerate it for at least five days.

3. To prepare the salad, remove the pickled feta from the liquid and drain it on paper towels. Take a bowl and combine the olives, strawberries, olive oil, cilantro, and spinach. Add feta, then season with salt and pepper.

Two brothers, Josh and Nate, fought hard to keep their 125-year-old and family owned olive orchard. After succeeding, they worked relentlessly to learn the business as well as being great stewards of Mother Earth by taking great care of their trees. This paid off, as the olives are giving back and each bottle the brothers produced has won an international award. The latest is a GOLD AWARD at the 2018 NYIOOC (largest olive oil competition in the world) for their Early Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Both brothers are highly committed to bringing you the very best, all 100% natural olive oils from farm to your table - all made right here in the USA.
