I'm on a fresh food kick this week. We've just started planning our vegetable garden and I'm dreaming about the delicious tomatoes that we'll be harvesting in a few months. Perfect for this Marinated Tomatoes, Cucumber and Feta Cheese recipe.
You have to use the ripest, tastiest tomatoes from your garden (or farmer's market) for this one. Heirloom tomatoes make this vegetable dish extra special.
3 large red and/or yellow tomatoes, sliced
2 medium cucumbers and/or zucchini, peeled and sliced
1/4 c. crumbled feta cheese
3 T. olive oil
3 T. white wine vinegar
1 T. chopped green onion or chopped chives
2 t. honey mustard
1/4 t. freshly ground pepper
salt to taste
Line a serving platter with leaf lettuce. Place tomatoes, zucchini and/or cucumbers on top.
Combine dressing ingredients (last 6 items above) in a small bowl. Drizzle over the vegetables, then cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Sprinkle with feta cheese before serving.
For a richer salad, try adding slices of avocado and/or brined olives to the mix. Simply delicious!
