If at all possible, use fresh, homegrown tomatoes - you'll be in heaven!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Instead of the more traditional mozzarella cheese, this fresh and light tomato salad makes use of tangy Feta cheese... and it's terrific. An easy side dish for meat, chicken, or fish. The Feta cheese complements the basil and both ingredients bring out the flavor of the tomatoes. It's colorful, cool, and refreshing.
