Summer Entertaining: Sliced Tomatoes with Feta

Grab the freshest tomatoes to make this outstanding, 4 ingredient, summer dish!

Sliced Tomatoes with Feta

Need the perfect summer appetizer or side dish?   I got you!  This dish is so easy you really don't even need a recipe.  With just 4 ingredients you can whip up this fresh dish bursting with flavor.  I chose to use Campari tomatoes for their size and taste.  They are about the size of a golf ball, are low in acid, sweet and juicy.  They are truly delectable!

I served these the other night with grilled steaks and basmati rice. I have also served them as appetizer at a summer party.  We eat them quite a lot, but especially in the summer months when the tomatoes are at their best.  To compliment the tomatoes I've added some feta, garlic, and a drizzle of olive oil.  Super yummy! Don't hesitate, make these tonight; they are a winner!

What Ingredients do I need?

  • Campari tomatoes
  • feta cheese - I use a block feta but you can buy crumbled feta as well
  • garlic
  • good olive oil

Substitutions and Variations

  • Use any type of tomato and just cut slices.  
  • If you are using cherry tomatoes I would cut them in half and serve as a side dish.  An appetizer would not work as well unless you put them on crostini first.  
  • Add chopped basil if you like.


Kitchen Tips and Notes

  • Since these are not cooked, not do they have a lot of ingredients, use the freshest and the best ingredients for the best flavor.
  • No need for salt as the cheese is salty enough.
  • Do use a good sprinkling of pepper.
  • These look wonderful arranged on a platter.
  • Use a serrated knife to easily cut your tomatoes and keep them from bruising.
  • Don't use your knife like a saw. Cut starting with the back of the blade and slice pulling through to the front of the blade.
