How To Make Tomato Salad with Feta
- In a large bowl, combine the halved heirloom tomatoes, cubed feta cheese, freshly chopped basil and parsley, a dash of salt and pepper, and the white wine vinaigrette. Stir to toss everything together.
- Refrigerate the tomato salad for at least an hour before serving. This really allows the flavors to marry together and for the vinaigrette to seep into everything. Serve chilled and enjoy!
Tomato Salad Tips and Variations
- This salad relies on using ripe tomatoes. That’s the real key to great flavor.
- To change up the flavors, swap out the feta cheese for fresh mozzarella pearls and add in sliced red onion.
- Feel free to try cherry tomatoes, grape tomatoes, or a mixture of tomatoes to play with shapes, textures, colors, and taste.
- You could add chunks of ham or grilled chicken for protein.
- If you want to add some green to your salad try slicing up some cucumber or avocado, adding in some arugula or spinach.
- A balsamic glaze drizzled over top will add a touch of sweetness.
Storage: Store any leftover tomato salad in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. You can absolutely make this salad a couple days in advance if bringing it to a party. We suggest adding the vinaigrette the day of so the salad doesn’t get too soaked before serving.
