The fresh flavors of Greece, mint, lemon, tomato and feta. Heavenly and always perfect for summer, either as a fabulous side dish or as a great lunch.
I made this as a side dish to go with a great spaghetti that I will share with you tomorrow. Em devoured it! She loved every bite of it and she is only 17 months old. Mr. W on the other hand would never eat anything with salad in the name, so I made enough for the two of us as a side dish.

Greek Caprese Salad
- 2 Roma tomatoes, sliced thick
- 1 ounce reduced fat feta, cut into 1/8″ cubes
- course sea salt, to taste
- fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 lemon
- 6 mint leaves, julienned
- Lay sliced tomatoes on a serving dish, sprinkle with sea salt.
- Scatter feta over tomatoes. Grind pepper over top. Pour olive oil over tomatoes and then squeeze lemon over the top.
- Be careful not to get seeds in your dish. I hold the lemon in my left hand and my right hand under to catch any seeds.
- Sprinkle mint over top. Serve immediately.
