Basic Ingredients for Feta Cheese and Tomato Salad


Tomatoes: Tomatoes are the star ingredient in this salad and bring in a juicy and sweet flavour to the dish. They also provide a good source of vitamins and antioxidants.

Feta Cheese: Feta cheese is a tangy and salty cheese that balances the sweetness of tomatoes. It also provides a creamy texture to the salad.

Olive Oil: Olive oil is used to dress the salad and add a rich flavour. It also has healthy fats that are good for the heart.

Red Wine Vinegar: Red wine vinegar adds a slight acidity to the salad and complements the flavors of the feta cheese and tomatoes.

alternative ingredients

Cherry Tomatoes: If you prefer a sweeter and smaller tomato, you can use cherry tomatoes instead of regular tomatoes.

Balsamic Vinegar: If you don’t have red wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar can be used as an alternative.

Crumbled Blue Cheese: If you don’t have feta cheese, you can use crumbled blue cheese for a similar tangy flavor.
