What to do with feta cheese? Help, please

Was in Costco today, and, impulsively, bought a 2 1/2 pound slab of feta cheese. I love it sprinkled over salad with olives, but really, how much am I going to use-up that way???
So, any easy, delicious ways to use it up before it goes bad? Can I freeze part of it?
Thanks

    1. One of my favorite pizzas is topped with kalamatas, artichoke hearts and feta.

      I used to make a spread for bread by mashing together feta, softened sun-dried tomatoes, minced garlic and minced kalamatas plus basil and oregano and then enough olive oil to fix the consistency to your liking. Pungent and yummy. This also works as a stuffing for cherry tomatoes.

      1. I'm guessing you bought the Presedential (?) brand that I buy a lot. It lasts forever so don't worry about having to use it up soon.
        I add feta to my hummus and salad dressing. Use it to stuff chicken or beef, make a "Greek" pasta with shrimp, oregano and feta.

        1. Thanks for these great suggestions. Keep them coming!!!
          And, yes, monavano, it is President brand. Good to know it lasts!!!

            In small quantities feta can be used in place of ques fresco/ blanco in Mexican dishes because they are both fresh cheeses.

              i really wouldn't describe feta as a "fresh cheese." http://fiascofarm.com/dairy/feta.html
              what am i missing?
