Tomato Feta Salad

This salad is amazing. I’m not a fan of feta, and Misha is not a fan of tomatoes… but you put them together in this salad and we will both devour it! A friend origionaly emailed me this recipe to bring over, and it has been a hit ever since!

Tomato Feta Salad
Barefoot Contessa.


2 pints cherry tomatoes
3/4 cup diced red onion, small
2 Tablespoons white wine vinegar or champagne vinegar
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 Tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
2 Tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
3/4 lb feta cheese Note: The trick is to use a good feta, we get ours from a local market and it is sold in blocks. It is a French feta (I think Valbreso). I think it makes a huge difference.


  1. Cut the tomatoes in half and place them in a large bowl.
  2. Add the onion, vinegar, olive oil, kosher salt, pepper, basil, and parsley and toss well.
  3. Dice the feta into 1/2 to 3/4 inch cubes, taking care to crumble it as little as possible.
  4. Gently fold the feta into the salad.
  5. Let the salad sit in the fridge for a bit, this lets the flavors all merge together.
  6. Serve at room temperature and enjoy!

We love this salad, it is a great summer salad or when you can find tomatoes. The trick to this salad is using good feta.
