Heirloom Tomato Feta Salad

Heirloom Tomato Feta Salad

Heirloom Tomato Feta Salad

If I could eat Heirloom Tomato Feta Salad with olive oil and herbs all year round I would be a very happy camper.

It is so fresh, sweet, savory, simple, pretty and most importantly delicious salad. One my favorite August salads when tomatoes are at the peak of the season; juicy and tasty!

When I was younger I hated cooked tomatoes or chunky tomatoes in meals. However, I absolutely loved eating tomatoes like an apple, just with a sprinkle of salt.

Heirloom Tomato Feta Salad Recipe

That is all I needed to survive hot summer days. I am still not a big fan of summer months, but I sure love its delicious produce; tomatoes, watermelon, peaches, cherries, cucumbers, etc., to name just a few of my favorite produce.

I know that most of the time you would see these tomatoes in a popular Italian dish, Caprese with mozzarella and basil drizzled with good olive oil. I wanted to make a conscious twist with Greek imported olive oil and feta cheese. Should we just call this one Greek Style Tomato Feta salad?

I am all for it if you are. Haha

Heirloom Tomato Feta Salad
Yield: Serves 4

Heirloom Tomato Feta Salad

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

An easy and simple summer salad.

Ingredients

  • 3-5 different types of tomatoes
  • Generous pinch kosher salt
  • Generous pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice, or balsamic vinegar if you prefer
  • 1 block or chunk feta cheese, 7-8 oz
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Fresh Oregano for garnish, optional

Instructions

  1. Wash tomatoes then using sharp knife make about 1/4 inch slices. You don't want them too thin but not to thick either. Depending on how many serving you want, you can totally use half of each tomato since some are pretty large. I was serving 4 people so I used all of it. If you have any leftovers you can bake a galette or add on pizza.
  2. Season tomatoes with salt just before serving, and before adding cheese. This way the salt will not start breaking the tomato slices. Same goes for any addition of acidities like vinegar or lemon juice. Do it right before serving.
  3. Now take the cheese out of the box and slice into cubes. Use some kitchen paper towel to dry them a bit if needed.
  4. Add Cheese son top of the tomatoes, drizzle with olive oil, then add a sprinkle of dried oregano and garnish with fresh oregano.
  5. You can use only one, but dried have its own aroma and fresh brings even more freshness which is the perfect combo for this salad.

Notes

You can add some olives or parsley.

Skillet Grilled Tofu Salad

Skillet Grilled Tofu Salad

Skillet Grilled Tofu Salad is one delightful meal. It is pretty and tasty. The first time I tried tofu was about 10 years ago, and let me tell you, I was not a big fan. I know now why the first time I made tofu it did not taste as good. To be honest, It looked so appetizing like a block of delicious cheese but it didn’t taste like cheese at all. […]

Creamy Summer Pasta Salad

Creamy Summer Pasta Salad

Creamy Summer Pasta Salad

I have been making a lot of pasta salads lately. I really love how we have so many options and variations that we can create with pasta.

This one was one of those pasta salads that reminded me greatly of summers that I used to spend in the rural countryside where the meadows were still untouchable by humans.

You would see never-ending open sunny fields thrive with the most beautiful wildflowers, and sometimes your eye would catch the sight of trees.

So, as I was putting together this salad, it just reminded me of some childhood memories spent in beautiful countrysides.

Creamy Summer Pasta Salad

This salad was beautiful, and very delicious as well. It would be perfect to share with your family and friends over a good ole BBQ.

I would imagine that this pasta salad would be outstanding if paired with a delicately grilled juicy steak. Oh, that sounds so mouthwatering right now!

One thing about me is that I cannot resist grilled food, as well as pasta. I am a huge carb lover, even though I am trying to cut it down as much as I can.

Nowadays we can find so many options such as veggie pasta, or gluten-free so you feel less guilty. With that being said, you can most definitely use GF pasta for this.

Creamy Summer Pasta Salad

My family loved this salad since everything works very well together and the vegetables are raw so my boys like it as well.

Also, if I have any leftovers, I just store it in a jar and refrigerate. It holds very well in the fridge for 3 days. I do not like keeping cooked food in the fridge for more than 3 days, but I assume it would be okay to keep it up to 5 days.

I hope you guys like this recipe, and if you do happen to make it please tag me on Instagram @sandraseasycooking and use hashtag #sandraseasycooking so I am able to see your delicious creations and share with my readers as well.

Happy Cooking!!!
