Tomato Salad with Feta and Olives

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 0 mins

The best time to make this is when the tomatoes are in season. If you love tomatoes, you will love this salad, as did my guests. This is not a complicated salad and you would think it came from a gourmet restaurant. I found this gem of a recipe in the Fine Cooking Magazine.

This is a great tasting salad and so beautiful to serve to guests. We loved addition of mint to the feta cheese. It reminded me a lot of a salad I get at a local Lebanese restaurant in the area. This is such a great find! Thank you so much, Heather.

Excellent and very easy salad that we enjoyed very much. I used basil instead of the mint (as indicated in the recipe) without any problems. I also skipped the salt to lower the sodium count. Next time I make this I will try it with the basil. Thanks Heather for another keeper salad!
