  1. Hi,
    I have garlic and herb crumbled feta cheese. Do you think this will work or is garlic a “no-no” for this dish?
    Thanks!

    1. Hi Lorraine! I have not tried it with garlic feta, so I honestly don’t know. I would probably eat it myself, because I love feta, but the garlic flavor might be overwhelming to some people. I know this doesn’t help a lot 🙁

  2. Do you let the potatoes cool to room temp, and eat it as a cold side dish? Sorry, I have company coming Monday and want to make this for the first time… want to get it right🌝

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Carol, I prefer them cold myself, but a lot of people like these warm as well. When served with Feta, I personally think cold is a little better.
