If you get into a rut of serving the same old tossed salad every night, try this. My kids love this Tomato-Feta Salad. It’s so light, fresh and easy to prepare. Serve it with chicken, pork, shrimp or a burger, and you’ve got a great low-fat side dish.
4 to 6 servings
2 cups chopped tomatoes or 2 pints cherry tomatoes, quartered
2 garlic, cloves, minced
1 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 small cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
1/4 cup chopped and pitted kalamata olives
4 ounces reduced feta cheese, crumbled
2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1. Combine tomatoes, garlic, basil, vinegar and olive oil, tossing gently. Add cucumber, kalamata olives, feta and parsley, mixing well. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator up to 2 days.
