How to make Tomato Feta Salad?

- Slice feta cheese into cubes.
- Make the dressing: mix all ingredients in a glass measuring cup and whisk well.
- Place tomatoes and cheese in a mixing bowl and add dressing. Toss to coat.
- Serve or chill in the fridge.
Tomato Feta Salad dressing:
I used my go-to homemade Italian dressing recipe, made with:
- olive oil,
- lemon juice (instead of vinegar),
- touch of honey
- herbs and spices.
It's quick and easy to make and absolutely perfect with plump cherry tomatoes and creamy feta cheese.
Any leftovers should be stored in the fridge since the salad contains cheese. It will keep well for up to 4 days.
What else can I add to this salad?
This salad is delicious on its own but you can also use it as a base and add many other ingredients, like croutons, onions, olives, greens (lettuce, kale, spinach, etc.), grilled chicken or shrimp, even berries and nuts!
Can I use store-bought dressing?
You can use any dressing you like, but I highly recommend making your own. My recipe for Italian Dressing calls for simple ingredients, that most likely are already in your pantry.
