-½ cup extra-virgin olive oil @getkristinas
-½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flake
-Crusty bread (for serving)
Preheat oven to 400°F. Drain olives and place on a cutting board.
Lightly smash with the heel of your hand just to break apart skin and flatten slightly.
Smash 3 garlic cloves and peel.
Using a vegetable peeler, remove peel from 1 lemon in long wide strips.
Put lemon peel, olives, garlic, ½ cup oil and ½ tsp red pepper in a small saucepan.
Cook over medium-low heat.
Swirl occasionally, until garlic is sizzling and golden around the edges.
Meanwhile, crumble feta into a shallow serving bowl.
Pour oil mixture over feta.
Let sit at least 10 minutes and up to 1 hour.
Meanwhile, tear bread into large pieces and place in oven.
Bake until edges are golden.
Serve with marinated feta and olives for dipping.
