    *Optional Ingredients - Salt to taste (I never add salt as the feta is "salty" enough for me) 1/4 cup black olives, slices or halved 1-2 pieces worth of bacon (crumbled or chopped) 1/2 tsp fresh lemon zest 3-4 anchovies (minced or chopped) *note that if you add instead if substitute any ingredients you may want to increase the olive oil by half a tablespoon.
