Tomato and Feta Salad

 Chad and I recently discovered a specialty store in Mobile, Olivella, that sells aged balsamic vinegars that are infused with different flavors as well as infused olive oils.  I was anxious to try one of the balsamic vinegars that I bought so I came up with this delicious salad.

Ingredients List:

1 cup – grape or cherry tomatoes, chopped

1/2  cup – purple onion, chopped

4 ounces – feta cheese, crumbled or diced

1/4 cup – chopped fresh basil

1/8 cup – chopped fresh parsley

1/4 cup – white balsamic, I used a cranberry & pear infused vinegar that I bought at Olivella.  If you can’t get that, regular white balsamic works too.

1/4 – cup extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp – kosher salt

1/2 tsp – coarse ground black pepper

pinch of red pepper flakes

Mix all of the ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.  Gently coat all of the ingredients so the feta doesn’t break all apart.  I served it at room temperature since the tomatoes were the main ingredient in the salad.  I think tomatoes are much more flavorful at room temperature and tend to lose their flavor when refrigerated.

 Serve and Enjoy!!!
