    This salad looks really delicious!
    Marcel, what kind of cheese would you recommend instead of feta cheese?

    • Hi Natasha,
      You can use any kind of white cheese, like Bulgarian or Romanian cheese (there are different varieties).
      Alternatively, you could skip the white cheese all together or replace it with something like a good brie cheese. One other idea would be to use good old Italian mozzarella cheese.

      Hope this helps!
