Tomato Feta Salad

I love this time of year! The start of spring feels like a rebirth — it inspires me to spend more time outside and eat beautiful, healthy fruits and vegetables.

The warmer weather and a recent trip to the Farmers Market inspired me to create a tomato masterpiece. And this Tomato Feta Salad is definitely a masterpiece!

Tomato Feta Salad

Tomatoes always make me think of my dad’s garden. He loved growing tomatoes. There is a fresh, clean smell that goes along with tomatoes. It says spring to me.

Tomato Feta Salad

This recipe calls for a variety of tomatoes. I used these beautiful golden sunburst tomatoes.

You will need a cup — cut in half.

You will also need a cup of these cherubs, cut in half. This tomato gives the salad a nice, rich red color.

Add the tomatoes to a mixing bowl. Then start adding the other ingredients including these chopped red onions.

The rest of the ingredients get added next including olive oil, white wine vinegar, basil, parsley, and salt & pepper. Mix this up and add a cup of crumbled Feta cheese.

Mix again.

Transfer to a serving plate and enjoy. I will say I could eat this entire plate. The flavors are so perfect together.
