A creamier and smoother variant of the original Greek Feta cheese, Danish Feta (also called Danish White) is made from cow's milk. Though it isn't authentic, the Danish type of feta wins heart over with its mild flavour and ability to be cubed and sliced without crumbling. It is available in classic flavour as well as spiced with various herbs such as garlic, sun-dried tomatoes and olives. Danish Feta is well suited for salads and can also be served grilled.
