This Feta and Tomato Salad is the easiest thing to make but potentially one of my all time favourite salads. Firstly you need some decent tomatoes. I like a selection of large beef or vine tomatoes and small cherry tomatoes but to be honest, any tomatoes will work. Then I like a really good feta. You can pick up some lovely aged Greek fetas now and Sainsbury’s do a wonderful barrel aged one that just seems to have a little more punch that the regular.
I’m serving mine with the incredible slightly pickled red onions I made last week. The oil and vinegar mix that they marinade in actually makes for a delectable dressing which makes this salad even easier to prep. You literally slice the tomatoes how you like, bung them on a plate and crumble the feta on top. Lay the red onions over the top and drizzle over the oil.
- 4 large beef or vine tomatoes – sliced
- 8 – 10 cherry tomatoes – halved
- pickled red onions
- fresh basil leaves
- salt and pepper
Tip: Try and make the salad a good hour before serving as it will really enhance the flavours if you can leave it at room temperature for a while.
Other than that, eat and of course, enjoy!
