Best Feta-Cheese Dishes in the U.S.

Feta cheese is a key ingredient in the Greek salad, a staple at American restaurants these days and a wonderful choice for those seeking health and flavor. The ubiquitous Panera Bread even offers two versions: one traditional and one with quinoa.

Interestingly, though, a traditional Greek salad (or horiatiki) is actually served sans lettuce. This version, too, can be enjoyed in the U.S., primarily in the Greek neighborhoods of big cities, like Astoria in Queens, New York, and Greektowns in Baltimore and Detroit.

Pictured here is a traditional Greek salad from Astoria's Taverna Kyclades, with pepperoncinis, kalamata olives, tomatoes and — best yet — a sizable block of feta.
