Author Notes: One of my favorite feta's is Bulgarian (sheep's milk) feta -- it has a slight tang and bite as compared to French feta which is a little smoother; richer. I like the rough angles of Bulgarian feta; the way it bumps up against the cool cucumber and the sweet blood orange. The mint is a refreshing bright bit at the end. —coffeefoodwritergirl
