Tomato, Feta and Oregano Salad

Small tomatoes mixed with fresh oregano, olive oil, red onion and topped with crumbled feta. This makes a simple salad that's big on flavour.This tomato, feta and oregano salad is one of my accidental hybrids. I saw these tomatoes in the supermarket and I was seduced. It was a bit like seeing a  beautiful pair of shoes and having to have them, although I can't ever see me wearing posh shoes on a 5k dog yomp! The tomatoes in the garden are struggling this year as they've had too much rain, but with my purchase I had an urge for a Greek Salad. It wasn't to be. The lettuce in the fridge was limp, the dogs had eaten the last of the cucumber. It wasn't looking very promising. Small tomatoes mixed with fresh oregano, olive oil, red onion and topped with crumbled feta. This makes a simple salad that's big on flavour. I washed and sliced the tomatoes in half lengthways, finely chopped red onion and placed in a bowl with fresh oregano, olive oil, salt, pepper and balsamic vinegar. Small tomatoes mixed with fresh oregano, olive oil, red onion and topped with crumbled feta. This makes a simple salad that's big on flavour. Leave the tomatoes at room temperature for about half an hour for the flavours to develop, then tumble onto a serving plate and crumble on  the feta cheese. Sweet tomatoes and tangy cheese....it's a great combination!

  1. Looks delicious. Our tomatoes are very late this year. Last year we were eating them from the end of May onwards, this year we only just have our first ripe ones now. By contrast the cucumbers are romping away and we are inundated!!

      Thanks! Last year everything went mad so I thought it would be ok to put allthe tomatoes outside but I was wrong! We’ve had a bumper crop of new potatoes and mange tout so I can’t really moan as we all know how much new potatoes cost here!

    Tomatoes, feta and oregano seem made for each other. I’ve just had breakfast, but looking at your luscious picture is making me drool. 🙂

    Eye popping and tasty looking. I love feta cheese. I think this combination is great. I have hardly ever used fresh oregano but now I know what it goes with. xo

      Thanks. I guess it’s normal to put mozzarella with tomato and basil so I like to accidently mix things up! 🙂
