Greek Tomato and Feta Salad


Tomatoes are in season and it's such a beautiful thing!  I love growing them and even buying the varieties that I don't grow for such great prices.  

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.
