It truly is summer in my garden; my kitchen counter is once again filled with beautiful heirloom tomatoes from my garden.
In working my way through the Monday Morning Cooking Club’s It’s always about the food cookbook (yes, the one my recipe is in), I came across this recipe for Heirloom Tomato Salad with Feta Dressing by Michele Wise. How perfect does that sound?! Well, about as perfect as it tastes!
I had to adapt it a little – there were only 2 of us and our avocado was bad (I am not including it here, but avocado would be great in this salad.
Heirloom Tomato Salad with Feta Dressing
adapted from Monday Morning Cooking Club’s It’s always about the food
3 assorted heirloom tomatoes (from the garden)
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 – 2 ounces feta cheese crumbled
1/4 cup olive oil
3/4 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 small clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 cup red onion, diced
Slice the larger tomatoes into thick slices and cut the smaller ones into wedges. Place them on a serving plate, alternating color and sizes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Make the dressing: In a large bowl, whisk together the feta, olive oil, vinegar, garlic, oregano and onion until just combined. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
To serve: Pour the dressing on top of the tomatoes. Enjoy!
