Pieces of Tomato soaked in vinegar and olive oil. Roma tomatoes are firm but I use whatever tomatoes I have on hand. After we eat out the ingredients I just add more tomatoes to the left over dressing. It stays good for wile like this and can save time during Ramadan or busy weeks. Don't use a watery balsamic for this.
- 4 roma tomatoes, cut into fours (or any other tomato you like, try some grape tomatoes cut in half or cherry tomatoes or a nice green)
- 1⁄2 cup olive oil
- 1⁄4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 ounce parsley, stems removed
- 1⁄4 teaspoon sea salt (optional)
- 2 garlic cloves, pressed
- 1 tablespoon za'atar spice mix (green)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1⁄2 cup feta, cubed
- *The feta and the zaatar have their own salt so add salt at the end for your own taste.
- Chop tomatoes in fours.
- Chop parsley.
- Crumble up the feta.
- Put olive oil, vinegar, spices, parsley,garlic in blender and blend on high speed to creat an emulsion and mix the flavors together.
- In a large bowl pour the emulsion and then add the chopped tomatoes and feta.
- Mix well to incorporate.
- Pour everything into a small Tupperware container with lid.
- Chill in the fridge to meld the flavors 2-24 hours.
- Serve with pita or crusty bread.
My, this smells good! And tastes good, too. Through some quirk of the Japanese marketing system, I found a package of Za'atar in my local supermarket. Then, I found some perfect small tomatoes. What I wasn't able to find was feta cheese, so this review is for the salad without cheese. Actually, although I did think of adding other things, I left it as just tomatoes. It is delicious. Thank you very much for sharing this lovely recipe with us.
Perfection! And just what the doctor ordered, a nice, cooling, tomato salad, on a hot summer day! I just ate this for my whole dinner it was so good. I had some white balsamic vinegar, and it was so tasty, I could of slurped up the dressing on it's own. I made my own Za'tar mix, so this really turned out great. Made for ZWT Zee Zesties!
This was great. DH isn't a fan of raw tomatoes or feta but he really enjoyed this. Made for ZWT6
