Fresh Tomato and Feta Cheese Salad

We went camping with 7 other couples one weekend, and each of us brought a dish to pass to go with the grilled meat. One of my friends brought this delightfully light, tasty and refreshing salad. It's a great side-dish to help use up the last of the season's fresh, home-grown tomato crop. The salad bowl was emptied quickly with most of us wishing for more!!

This was great for lunch! On another reviwers suggestion I added a bit of mint to my dressing. I did use dried oregano. I also chopped my tomatoes a little smaller. I used a sundried tomato basil feta and it was just wonderful! Great light salad that is hearty at the same time! I paired this with some grilled chicken and it was great! Made Zaar Chef's ABC tag!

I liked the flavors in this recipe. I drained away the juices from the tomatoes by coring them, salting and then allowing them sit for a few minutes over the sink in a collander -- to avoid the soupiness others mentioned. I topped with a few sliced peppercinis too, to spice it up, and next time will try it with a little cucumber.

This was a very tasty salad, and quite a departure from our normal tomato salads. Our tomatoes were very juicy too, so next time i think I would drain them a little before mixing in the dressing, because we didn't like the salad quite that wet.
