Tomato and Feta Salad

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.

Let children help
