Tomato Salad with Fresh Mint and Danish feta


Here it is, my first organically grown tomato. Isn’t she a beauty? There definitely is something sensual about her shape, don’t you think. As this was the only tomato ready for picking I couldn’t really experiment with cooking, but I did have fun with the camera instead. My family loves tomatoes – Dad loves Cream of Tomato soup, Christopher loves Toasted cheese and Tomato sandwiches, Chloe likes Napolitana Sauce on pasta and my favorite is this salad:

Tomato Salad with Fresh Mint and Danish feta

Serves 4 people

500gr baby tomatoes (use different colors)
100gr Danish Feta
zest of 1 lemon
lemon juice to taste
extra virgin olive oil
chopped mint

Wash and halve tomatoes in salad bowl
Add all other ingredients and keep in fridge for 1/2 hour

Serve as a salad with grilled fish or steak.
Delicious as a starter on mini brucshetta’s.


“A world without tomatoes is like a string quartet without violins.”
Laurie Colwin, Home Cooking

“It’s difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating a homegrown tomato.”
