Tomato Salad with Whipped Feta

15 minutes

Yield: Serves 4 side salads or 2 main

This simple salad is the perfect way to enjoy seasonal tomatoes before the end of summer!


1 cup feta cheese, crumbled

1 cup (240 mL) sour cream or crème fraîche

450 g tomatoes, mixed variety

2 Tbs (30 mL) red wine vinegar

2 Tbs (30 mL) cold pressed canola oil (more for drizzling)

To taste, kosher salt

To taste, cracked black pepper

¼ red onion, sliced

Toasted sunflower seeds, to garnish


  1. In a food processor or blender, pulse the feta cheese until almost smooth.
  2. Add the sour cream and continue to pulse until it is a smooth consistency. Set aside (this will make more than you need for this recipe, but it’s great as a dip or on burgers)
  3. Cut the tomatoes, some into quarters, some slices, get a mix of sizes and shapes.
  4. Mix together the vinegar and oil, salt and pepper, and any juices that accumulate while cutting the tomatoes.
  5. Toss tomatoes and onions with the vinegar oil “dressing”. Taste and let sit 10 minutes. Taste again and adjust seasonings, as tomatoes taste different throughout the season.
  6. To serve, smear some whipped feta on the bottom of a plate, and pile on the tomatoes. Garnish with toasted sunflower seeds and kosher salt.
  7. Drizzle with a little cold pressed canola and enjoy!
