When you have ripe tomatoes on hand, there’s nothing better than crafting a flavorful salad from them. Especially in summer, tomato salad in all its variations can be enjoyed every day.

And for a bit of variety, this super delicious Tomato Feta Salad comes into play! Ripe, yet slightly crunchy tomatoes, finely sliced red onion, creamy feta cheese, fresh herbs, and a super simple dressing with a citrus note and enough acidity! This salad sounds super simple, and it is.

It’s very quick to prepare with just a few good ingredients. And it tastes fabulous! Every bite of this salad is a delight; it is at once fresh, has a wonderful acidity, and the salty and creamy note from the feta perfectly rounds off the taste. Moreover, it’s healthy, rich in vitamins, and suitable for a low-carb diet.

For a vegan version of this salad, use this recipe to make vegan feta cheese or use a dairy-free alternative from the supermarket.

Ingredients

See recipe card for quantities.

  • Tomatoes – ripe, yet still crunchy tomatoes like beefsteak tomatoes are best for this salad. Beefsteak tomatoes have a particularly great flavor, a crunchy bite, and lose almost no water when cutting. The recipe also works with a tomato variety of your choice, such as cherry tomatoes, grape tomatoes, roma tomatoes, or heirloom tomatoes.
  • Feta – for a creamy & salty bite!
  • Red Onion – adds a mild spiciness. You can also use a shallot or scallion, which are a bit milder.
  • Fresh Herbs – Basil, & Parsley – or dill, cilantro, mint. Feel free to add a pinch of dried oregano.
  • Lemon Juice & White Balsamic Vinegar – provides a great acidity, fresh citrus note, and mild sweetness. This salad handles the acidity very well, which is why I particularly like it with a lot of lemon juice. You could use red wine vinegar as a substitution.
  • Olive Oil – the best extra virgin olive oil and tomatoes are a fabulous combination.
  • Salt & Black Pepper – for seasoning. I like to use coarse salt flakes, which stand out on the tomatoes.

Variations

  • Crunchy – mix English cucumber slices and kalamata olives into the salad.
  • Fruity – add watermelon, honeydew melon, or peach.
  • Spicy – season with red pepper flakes.
  • Filling Salad – mix the tomato salad with quinoa, bulgur, or pasta to make to serve it as a light main.
  • Vegan – use a dairy-free feta alternative.

Storage Instructions

I recommend enjoying this salad fresh. However, if you have leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.

Tomatoes have hardly any taste straight from the fridge, so it’s better to let leftovers sit for 20-30 minutes at room temperature before eating.
