LongJohn’s Nana, Mrs. Nice, has been coming into town to spend some time with him once a week so that I can do things that necessitate the use of both hands (in fact, she’s here right now so that I can use both hands to type this post – yay for Mrs. Nice, and grandparents everywhere!).
When she was here last I whipped up this salad of things that were in my fridge: normally when I make a tomato salad with feta I use balsamic vinegar and fresh basil but I didn’t have either of those so I went with a little twist, and I hope you like it.
Start with some tomatoes, naturally. I’m using grape tomatoes here but you can use whatever you have.
Then, finely chop up an onion. This is a shallot. A red onion would also be nice.
Nice and small. We want the IDEA of onion rather than holy-wow-there’s-a-lotta-onion-in-this.
Grab some mint. I grew this monstrosity from three stalks I got out of a box at the grocery store.
Crumble up some nice firm feta cheese.
I made a dressing out of grapeseed oil, honey, and a bit of lemon juice, and drizzled it over the whole shebang.
It was lovely!
