Tomato, Feta and Oregano Salad

This delicious Tomato, Feta and Oregano Salad is the perfect side dish for summer. Why not pack it for a picnic, or serve at your next BBQ.

It feels like such a long time since I’ve had a proper summer holiday abroad. For the last couple of years our trips away have been to rather cold places. It was China this year and Iceland the year before that. We’ve also had a few staycations in Cornwall which have, of course, involved a fair amount of rain. I miss taking a week off over summer and heading to a little Greek Island to bask in the sun.

If I’m not going to head off to Greece any time soon then I need to bring a taste of Greece to me! I’ve been trying to master Souvlaki and Saganaki. But while those recipes are still in development, this Tomato, Feta and Oregano Salad will have to satisfy my cravings.

Overgrown oregano

My herb garden is going absolutely CRAZY. Despite keeping our herbs in small pots in an attempt to contain them, some are getting unwieldy!

You can read about my herb garden here.

The oregano in particular has done really well. We just can’t use it quick enough so I’ve had to resort to ways of “preserving” it so we can get some joy out of it for a little bit longer.

You can of course dry and freeze herbs like oregano but with BBQ season in full swing I wanted to do something a little bit different. This Oregano Oil can be poured on almost anything (fish, chicken, halloumi, you name it) but I love it drizzled all over this Greek inspired Tomato, Feta and Oregano Salad.

Serve it with…

The first time I made this salad this summer was for a BBQ as friends. It’s a fantastic BBQ side dish whether you’re serving up traditional pork souvlaki, lamb steaks, beef burgers or even chicken drumsticks or a fillet of fish.

It’s also a good salad to take on a picnic. Tomatoes always taste best when they’ve been able to warm up a little in the sunshine and you don’t have to worry about the oil making any salad leaves soggy – because there aren’t any!

This Tomato, Feta and Oregano Salad really should be your go to summer side!

The recipe

You can use any old tomatoes for this recipe, colourful heritage tomatoes will make for a stunning dish but I prefer hearty beef mushrooms. Make sure you pick a real salty feta too. “Greek salad cheese” just won’t cut it here I’m afraid. Last but not least, make sure you’ve made a fresh batch of this Oregano Oil to drizzle over.

  1. Yum! I adore anything with feta, and since it’s late-summer tomato season, this recipe looks divine. Can’t wait to make it for an easy, healthy dinner!

  2. Oh, I know. Especially after having kids and not having the freedom to travel when you feel like it is quite frustrating. So! Let’s bring the rest of the world’s food to our kitchen, shall we? I daresay, sometimes the food we prepare end up being better than what we would have had out there!

  3. Tomatoes are one of my favourite foods, so this is a great find and I can’t wait to try it. I’ve pinned for reference and I’m going to check out how to grow Oregano and your Oregano oil recipe now 🙂 Great reading for a Monday morning xx

  4. I love this type of salad and I make it very often in the hot summer days. There’s nothing better than the juicy sweet taste of the tomatoes combined with the tangy flavour of the feta cheese.
