I take back anything mean I’ve said about raw tomatoes recently. This salad is a total winner, I absolutely love it and I cannot wait to make it again sometime very soon … please make it, too! And while you’re at it, scroll down to find some other terrific recipes that feature ingredients from the current Sendik’s sale ad. Have a great week!
TOMATO SALAD WITH FETA & OLIVES
5 large tomatoes (about 3 pounds), cored, sliced (Beefsteak Tomatoes are on sale)
1 red onion, halved, thinly sliced
1/2 cup olive oil (Sendik’s Pure Olive Oil is on sale if you’re running low)
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
3 large garlic cloves, finely chopped
4 ounces feta cheese (about 1 generous cup), crumbled
1/3 cup brine-cured olives, preferably Kalamata (optional)
Overlap tomato and onion slices on large platter. Whisk oil, vinegar, parsley and garlic in small bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour over salad. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour or cover and refrigerate up to 3 hours, basting occasionally with dressing.
Sprinkle salad with cheese and garnish with olives, if desired.
The tomato salad would be fabulous alongside these Spice Rubbed Pork Chops (Value Packs of Sendik’s Natural Pork Chops are on sale).
Or, go slightly lighter on the feta and serve the salad with Grilled Sirloin Steaks with Blue Cheese Walnut Butter. Sendik’s Natural Boneless Top Sirloin Steaks are on sale.
Another great salad option for this week is the Panzanella I posted from last week – again, this is a perfect time to make that one if you haven’t already. Oh my gosh, it is pure heaven. Look for sale tomatoes (as discussed), sale English (seedless) Cucumbers, sale Sendik’s Balsamic or White Balsamic Vinegar, and Sendik’s Pure Olive Oil. Enjoy! : )Featured, Fresh, Frugal, Fabulous, News | July 19th, 2012
