Heirloom Tomato Greek Salad

I had quite a few smaller heirloom tomatoes so I decided to make a salad by adding some cucumber, onion, feta, and kalamata olives to the tomatoes then tossed them with some of my leftover Fran’s Vinaigrette. I let the salad sit for 20 minutes to let the flavors mingle before serving with dinner. The tomatoes were so flavorful and delicious and paired nicely with the crisp cucumber, tangy olives, and salty feta. It was a nice flavorful salad the we all enjoyed – perfect for a hot summer evening.

Prepare the vinaigrette ~ click here for the recipe instructions.

Place the tomatoes in a bowl and add the cucumber, onion, and kalamata olives. Season with a bit of sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste then drizzle with the vinaigrette. Toss to coat evenly then let it sit for 15-20 minutes for flavors to mingle. Sprinkle the top with feta cheese right before serving. Enjoy.

    I like Greek Salad and this version without lettuce is equally good. I used to order it this way in my favorite Greek restaurant when I worked.

    It’s like Greek salad but without the lettuce! Which is great because the lettuce is actually my least favorite part!
