Party tomatoes with marinated feta

Ingredients:

7 – 8 ounce package of feta cheese
Tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil + some extra for drizzling
1 tablespoon minced shallot
½ a teaspoon of chopped fresh oregano
1 pound large Campari tomatoes (adjust according to number of expected guests)
Pitted Kalamata olives, halved lengthwise

Cut feta cheese into ½ inch cubes. Toss cubes of feta, oil, shallot and oregano in small bowl. Season with pepper.

Cut 12 tomatoes crosswise in half. Scoop out tomato pulp with melon baler or small spoon. Place tomatoes, cut side up, on serving plate. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stuff hollowed tomatoes with marinated feta.

Slide in olive half alongside the cheese. Drizzle with additional olive oil. Serve immediately.

Wine pairing suggestion:
The saltiness of Greek Feta cheese with a earthy taste of aged Kalamata olives makes a great match to Spanish white wine called Las Brisas. Rich flavors of Sauvignon Blanc makes this blend a great match to all the spices of this yummy appetizer.
