Tomato, Basil, and Feta Salad

photo 2Some of you may remember me mentioning on my Facebook page a few weeks ago that I would share the recipe of this little salad I made from my finds at farmers market. I’m finally getting to share today. With all the wonderful produce available this summer, it’s hard not to enjoy a nice summer salad. This would make a great addition to any July 4th get togethers or cookouts going on this summer. This is a modified version of a recipe from AllRecipes.com with the tiny addition of black olives and instead of roma tomatoes, I used some plump tomatoes I found at the market that day.

Ingredients
6 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
1 small cucumber- quartered length wise and chopped (I used 2 small cucumbers for my recipe)
3 green onions, chopped
1 small can sliced black olives
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, cut into thin strips
3 Tb olive oil
2 Tb balsamic vinegar
3 Tb crumbled feta cheese (I may have used more than this 🙂 )
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions
In a large bowl, combine and toss all ingredients.

Side note: I like to let this chill in the fridge for a bit, but that may just be personal preference on my part.

Please try this out and let me know what you think! Please let me know of any of your own variations to this recipe.
