Heirloom Tomato Salad with Za’atar Coated Feta
It's officially too hot to cook, so our Chef in Residence has shared the ideal recipe for sweltering summer days. This easy tomato salad comes together in minutes and lets beautiful, ripe summer tomatoes really shine.
"Summer tomatoes have me running to Union Square Greenmarket in 93 degree weather. No regrets. It’s simply not summer without bursting, colorful tomatoes making an appearance on my plate at least once a day. This salad nails it — a simple glossy vinaigrette with California orange blossom honey, PARASOL vinegar, and ROSETTE olive oil brings subtle sweetness and a delicious garlicky note. Slabs of salty feta are coated in zesty za’atar, a cool party trick that looks very fancy, but literally takes a minute to do. A rainbow assortment of heirloom tomatoes cut in juicy wedges serves as the royal crown around the feta with fresh dill and flaky salt to finish. When the tomatoes are this good you really don’t need much else — maybe just some crusty bread on the side for dipping." - Noreen Wasti
