  • Place the feta in the centre of a piece of baking paper or foil in a baking dish, making sure there is plenty of spare paper or foil around the cheese.
  • Pile the tomato, pepper, olives and capers on top. Then sprinkle with the paprika, oregano and black pepper. Finally, drizzle over the olive oil.
  • Gather up the sides of the paper or foil and scrunch it up roughly into the middle to make a parcel.
