This is so simple and I am sure everyone has tried it before, but if not, here it is. A super easier, but delectable, appetizer to serve when you have company over….or you are trying to make brownie points with your spouse….
- 1 lb. yellow and orange tomatoes
- Butter Lettuce
- 1 lb. block of Feta Cheese
- 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- 1 bunch of fresh basil
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Slice tomatoes and arrange on six serving plates. Cut feta into six even slices and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet preferrably, if not use a lightly oiled cookie sheet.
Drizzle oil over the cheese slices and broil; until lightly browned. CAREFULLY remove from pan with a spatula and place the warm feta over the tomato slices. Do not make the slices too thin or you will never get it off the paper.
Chiffenade the basil and sprinkle over the salad.
Note: Never store tomatoes in the fridge. They will lose their flavour and colour. Just leave them on the counter and they will retain all the flavour. Just be sure to wash them before using.
