Mini Heirloom Tomato Salad

mini heirloom tomato salad When I was a kid, no one ever told me that "real" Greek salad never used iceberg lettuce. As a child raised on the classic combo of iceberg lettuce, cucumber and tomato, it's fair to say that my young mind was completely blown. Up to this point, I had no idea how much I would come to love this simple yet delicious salad. This mini heirloom tomato salad isn't authentically Greek, but I've borrowed the essence of this cuisine to give a little twist to an otherwise everyday salad. Here's what you need to do to make this salad: In a bowl or serving dish, layer with sliced bell pepper, thinly sliced sweet onion and halved mini heirloom tomatoes (chopped tomatoes make a great substitute). Drizzle with equal amounts of lemon juice and extra-virgin olive oil. Sprinkle with a bit of salt, pepper and oregano. Top with crumbled feta cheese. Photography by Irene Fong
