Fresh Tomato and Feta Salad

A month or so ago, my husband and kids were out of town for the weekend.  I had the pleasure of dining at my sisters one of those nights, and my brother-in-law proved to be a great cook!

I just fell in love with one of the dishes he made.  It is a simple salad, PERFECT for summer!

This Tomato and Feta Salad is really easy to throw together, and it’s tastes great.

You are going to be slicing several cherry tomatoes, so I used this trick here.

You will also slice some onions, and green onions.  Then you pretty much just toss everything together.  As my daughter would say “Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.”

Tomato and Feta Salad, so fresh and perfect for summer

The dressing is also easy, because you can use pretty much any Italian dressing you want.  I prefer Olive Garden Dressing.  You can make it or buy it.  Drizzle your desired amount over the salad, then add a splash of Apple Cider Vinegar.  The sharpness of the this extra vinegar adds such a kick to the salad.  I LOVE it!  I may have even drank all the dressing out of the bottom of the bowl when I finished my salad…

  1. A perfect side when you buy cherry tomatoes in bulk from Cosco and worried you not going to be able to eat all of them 🙂

  2. Yum! My youngest dd loves tomatoes and she would love this salad. Would love if you shared this on Merry Monday Linky Party tonight at 6pm PST.

  3. I need to go buy some feta so I can try this really soon. It’s always great when I see a new recipe I want to try and I already have most of the ingredients already.
    I love the idea of putting cider vinegar on it .
    Thanks.
