The end of summer is my favorite season to shop at farmers markets, the sights, colors, smells and flavors are amazing. It is produce heaven at it’s most glorious. I love seeing the varieties of tomatoes; heirloom, roma, cherry, vine, plum and beefsteak in different sizes and colors. When I was a child we used to bite into ripe summer tomatoes like apples and let the juice run down our chin. Oh, heaven!
Summer tomatoes are bursting with flavor and loaded with nutrients. They are great for improving digestion, preventing heart disease and fighting cancer, among many other health benefits. They play well with herbs and taste wonderful raw, roasted or cooked.
I love making this simple Summer Tomatoes Salad often, it is good on it’s own or served on top of crispy lettuce or peppery arugula, Add feta cheese and olives and you’ve got an upgraded greek salad!

The salad looks divine, Rachel, and so easy to prepare! Thank you.
So glad you like it!
Yum! I love ripe off-the-vine tomatoes (and so do the deer in my neighborhood). Thanks for the recipe and sharing your story. They (the tomatoes, that is) are bursting with flavor and loaded with nutrients!
This is the first year I am growing tomatoes in my garden, can’t wait to eat them off the vine.
Having been raised in an Italian home, tomatoes are my middle name (along with garlic)!
LOL. I grew up in another Mediterranean country, Israel, so I understand tomatoes being a middle name!
I just love tomatoes – any time and however they are presented. Lovely recipe and will give it a try.
This looks wonderful! I’ll have to try this! Pinned it to my recipe board! Thanks for sharing!
One of my favorites!
I love feta cheese 🙂 This salad reminds me of my muscat days. Arabic salads are divine with olive oil, lemon and feta cheese.
