The quickest and easiest of all salads, this tomato and feta combination takes a few minutes, tastes wonderful, and adds an authentic Greek touch to any meal. If you don’t have time or the ingredients for a full Greek salad, this is a great substitute.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
- 1 large ripe tomato
- 1/4 cup of feta cheese, crumbled or chunks
- pinch of oregano
- pinch of pepper
- extra virgin olive oil
Wash and core the tomato, and cut into bite-sized chunks. Put the feta on top, sprinkle with pepper and dried oregano. Pour olive oil over the top – more if you like to dip bread, less if not – and serve.
Yield: serves 2
Note: If the tomato skin is tough, peel the tomato before making the salad.
