My daughter is holding a handful of tomatoes we grew and a few that we bought in the photo here.
I wanted to come up with a fresh and tasty recipe to really highlight these tomatoes so I came up with this Greek Tomato and Feta Salad. The tomatoes are so sweet and bursting with juice so the salty feta cheese made a great contrast.
Of course I had to add some olives and jalapenos --two of my favorite salad ingredients! The dressing is a creamy and tangy so it clings to each ingredient perfectly. You can eat this salad as a side with any sandwich like a gyro, grilled meat or simply on it's own as a snack.
1 pound quartered tomatoes (any small variety of small tomatoes work great)
1/2 red onion finely diced
1/2 cup Greek olives (black, green and/or kalamata)
1 cucumber diced
1 jalapeno finely diced
1/2 cup of feta cheese crumbled
Creamy Greek Style Dressing
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 cup Fresh lemon juice
1-2 cloves of grated garlic
1 Tbs of honey
2 Tbs of mayonnaise
1-2 tsp of red wine vinegar
salt and black pepper to taste
Directions: Prepare all salad ingredients. Mix salad dressing. Pour enough dressing to coat all the salad ingredients. Serve immediately or chill in the fridge. I like it at room temperatures for the most flavor. Store remaining dressing in the fridge for use on salads later. Enjoy.
