Sun Gold Tomato Salad

I put this salad together for Mary's baby shower with the help of Alli! It turned out delicious and there were no left overs! It is so easy, fast, and simple to make!


3-4 cups Sun Gold, Cherry, Grape, Pear Tomatoes (whatever small tomatoes you have work great!)
1/2 cup Feta Crumbles
1/2 raw Sweet Onion
2-3TBS Balsamic Vinegar
1TBS Olive Oil
1 clove Garlic or 1 tsp Garlic Powder
2 tsp Sea Salt
Any fresh herbs you have. I prefer Basil, of course!

(Increase or decrease any of the ingredients you like. Sometimes I add a lot more feta and basil!)


Slice each tomato in half with a serrated knife. (Serrated knives seem to not "squash" these delicate little tomatoes and make it easier to cut through the skin)
Toss the tomatoes with feta and onions.
Drizzle with Balsamic Vinegar and Olive Oil. Mix in Garlic, Salt, and Herbs.
Toss the whole salad together. Garnish with more fresh Basil or Parsley.
(I forgot to bring my herbs to the shower so my picture is missing that "pop" of color  and distinct basil flavor. It was still delicious though!)

  1. What a lovely blog! It's nice to see another NW foodie blog. This salad looks wonderful! So colorful! Sadly, this was a bad totmato year for me. Nearly no fruit at all!
