This "Tomato and Feta Salad" is a simple salad with just a few ingredients, but it's full of fresh flavor! It's so good in the summer when tomatoes, cucumbers and basil are fresh. I have basil growing out of every pot it seems right now and I look for different ways to use it, because I love the flavor!
This is good with anything really, but I think it's especially complimentary to Italian, Greek and pasta dishes! Here is what you need for this:
5-6 fresh tomatoes, diced
1 medium cucumber, peeled and diced
1 medium sweet onion, diced (I used Vidalia)
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 Tbs. white vinegar or rice vinegar
2 tsps. sugar
1 tsp. Greek seasoning
1/2 tsp. fresh ground pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup Feta cheese crumbles (I used a sundried tomato Feta cheese)
Place the tomatoes, cucumber, onion and basil in a salad bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk the vinegar into the olive oil along with the seasonings, sugar and minced garlic.
Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss lightly. Sprinkle the top with the Feta cheese. Serve immediately. This is best served right away!
