Tomatoes and feta salad is so refreshing and easy, you’ll want to make this 5-minute recipe whenever you have ripe tomatoes on hand, heirloom or not.
A salad of sliced tomatoes with feta is pretty much our favorite way to eat fresh tomatoes in the summer – any type of garden-fresh tomatoes. And when the heirloom varieties start ripening in colors of orange, yellow, purple-red, or even green – it makes for a great presentation, too.
Not only are the flavors of this salad simple and pure, it’s also the easiest thing in the world, yet looks great. I’ve served this for company many times, and everyone loves it.
Tomatoes and Feta Salad
In fact, it’s hardly even a recipe. All you need are garden-fresh tomatoes, balsamic vinegar (olive oil is optional) and some feta cheese. I sometimes add fresh basil leaves for my version of the typical tomato, mozzarella, basil salad (Caprese Salad). I know many love this salad, but I always find the mozzarella to be bland even if it’s fresh. I much prefer the tang of feta – I’m actually sorta addicted to this salad and could happily eat it everyday when the tomatoes are ripe.
Think this is too simple? Think I’m making too much of a fuss over a plate of tomatoes? Try it and I think you’ll agree with me!
