It’s the simple things in life that can put a smile on my face, a sunny day, a pile of pumpkins sitting on a front porch, a cola in the afternoon, (I know, I know) a spoonful of Nutella before bed (I know, I know…trust me, I know, lol), the last bits of tomatoes from a garden…I took a small trek to the local general store by me, (to burn of the cola and Nutella) and found a sweet pile of garden grown cherry tomatoes, waiting just for me. The woman at the counter put the tomatoes in their container into a brown paper bag and I dug my hand inside to give her back the container, so she could reuse it. She said, “Oh…I don’t think I’m gonna be needing it, I don’t think there are too many tomatoes left…”
Ohh..the bittersweet end of summer…
I came home, to rip open the bag and make this simple tomato and Feta cheese salad. It’s so rich and indulgent, it can also be used as a condiment, topping grilled chicken, eggplant or steak. Enjoy!
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1 2×3 inch square good Feta cheese (made from sheep and/or goat) crumbled
