Tomato Basil Feta Salad Recipe

I found this recipe on
I'm a sucker for anything with feta in it but I love the combination of tomato's, basil, and balsamic at any time. This is a great refreshing summer salad! I'm also substituting home grown cherry and grape tomatoes in place of the roma's since I have so many. I just cut them in half. And basil is very easy to grow so if you don't have some fresh basil at home pick up a plant. It's so yummy and great in lots of dishes.


6 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
1 small cucumber - peeled, quartered lengthwise, and chopped
3 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, cut into thin strips
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

1.In a large bowl, toss together the tomatoes, cucumber, green onions, basil, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and feta cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
