I always love it when I expect a recipe to be great, but it still manages to exceed my already high expectations. This dish was sure to be a winner. Ripe, juicy cherry tomatoes with crisp cucumbers and crumbled feta cheese – all things I love, and commonly known as ingredients that “go” together. I mainly made this just as an alternative side dish to the usual green salad that we have so often. I actually loved it so much, it outshone the main dish that I served it with. It was equally delicious as leftovers the next day. The original recipe calls for kalamata olives, but I omitted them. I like olives in some contexts, but in this case I was happy to let the fresh produce shine through and not be overpowered by the strong, briny flavor of olives. Simple, healthy and bursting with flavor, this salad is welcome at my table any day and will surely be making many reappearances on our menu.
