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.

Step 6
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.
