Tomato, Cheese, and Thyme Salad

My sister thinks this recipe is too simple to post on my blog. Well, it is simple; I won’t disagree. But sometimes the simple, quick fix recipes are those we need when time is scarce. I really think the addition of thyme was key in getting the flavor. I roughly measured the ingredients, so use your judgment and taste as you add the dressing components. The feta cheese I found was creamier than usual, but it wounded up working really well. If you don’t have feta, try goat cheese.

Ingredients:

  • 5 medium tomatoes–choose them hard
  • 4 ounces feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup pitted and halved black olives
  • lemon juice
  • olive oil
  • crushed dry thyme leaves

Cut the tomatoes and feta cheese into bite-size pieces. Add the olives, lemon juice, olive oil and thyme leaves and stir. Ta-da. If you don’t have thyme, try oregano or fresh basil.

    mmm, I make something simmilar with mint (leaves or dried) instead of thyme and a teeny weeny bit of mashed onions (when I can get away with it ;), thanks for this variation, it seems awesome

    Thank you Ruba for the comment! Actually, you just reminded me that I did add some mashed onions! ooops–forgot to add. But you can make it without too. I made this recipe again and added cucumbers. It’s very versatile!
