tomato-feta salad

May 9, 2011

We have seen our last pretty day here in Houston until October.  So it is officially summer.  And this salad just screams summer to me.  The bright flavor of the tomatoes with the tangy vinegar and feta is really refreshing.

Its really hard to see in this picture but this feta is the world’s best feta.  It is made from sheep’s milk and made in France and is super creamy and tangy.  I buy it at H-E-B so I don’t think its too hard to find.  Its just that I only recently discovered it so I am obsessed.

Slice all of the tomatoes in half.  Use a serrated knife so you don’t squish the tomatoes.

In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil, vinegar, pepper and salt until well-combined.

Break the feta off into small cubes but try not to crumble it too much.  Add the feta to the bowl with the tomatoes, chopped red onions and chopped herbs.  Drizzle the dressing over the feta-tomato mixture and toss to combine.

Taste for seasonings and add more salt and pepper as needed.  Serve immediately after tossing with dressing.
