➡️ What is a tomato salad? ❓
Tomato salad is a raw vegetable salad that contains only tomatoes or tomatoes in combination with other vegetables such as onion, bell pepper, and cucumber. Tomato salad is usually topped with wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar, or lemon juice. Sometimes salted brine cheese is grated over a tomato salad, this type of combination being especially popular in the Balkan and Mediterranean areas. Tomato salad is flavored with various herbs such as basil, parsley, dill, and mint.
➡️ What are the health benefits of eating tomatoes? ⚕️
“Tomatoes are loaded with a substance called lycopene. It gives them their bright red color and helps protect them from the ultraviolet rays of the sun. In much the same way, it can help protect your cells from damage. Tomatoes also have potassium, vitamins B and E, and other nutrients. Immune System Lycopene is an antioxidant — it fights molecules called free radicals that can damage your cells and affect your immune system. Because of that, foods high in lycopene, like tomatoes, may make you less likely to have lung, stomach, or prostate cancer. Some research shows they might help prevent the disease in the pancreas, colon, throat, mouth, breast, and cervix as well. Heart Lycopene also may help lower your levels of LDL, or “bad” cholesterol, as well as your blood pressure. And that may lower your chances of heart disease. Other nutrients in tomatoes, like vitamins B and E and antioxidants called flavonoids, may boost your heart health, too. Eyes Tomatoes have substances called lutein and zeaxanthin that may help protect your eyes from the blue light made by digital devices like smartphones and computers. They also may help keep your eyes from feeling tired and ease headaches from eyestrain. And some research shows they may even make you less likely to have a more serious form of the leading cause of blindness in the U.S.: age-related macular degeneration.” 📖 Read more on The Health Benefits of Tomatoes!
Greek tomatoes are very sweet due to the climate of this Mediterranean country, so I recommend using, as much as possible, very ripe tomatoes to accurately reproduce the authentic taste of the tomato feta salad
Greek cuisine is pretty rustic, so you don’t need to chop tomatoes and onions finely but rather coarsely
Greeks like to sour the feta and tomato salad with white wine vinegar or even with fresh lemon juice, use an amount that fits your personal taste – add first a spoon of vinegar or lemon juice, mix and taste, then add more as needed
Greek olive oil is recommended for this recipe to reproduce better the authentic taste of this tomato salad
use a dryer feta cheese type that enables you to grate it coarsely or break it by hand into smaller pieces, other types of brine cheese can be used if you don’t have feta at hand
serve the tomato feta salad immediately as you make it because ripe tomatoes eliminate a lot of juice and the salad can become watery very quickly
