• 2-3 large tomatoes, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced (you can adjust the amount based on your preference for onion strength)
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese (optional)
  • 1/4 cup kalamata olives, halved (optional)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. In a large bowl, combine chopped tomatoes, red onions, feta cheese (if using), kalamata olives (if using), and fresh parsley.
  2. In a separate small bowl, whisk together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper.
  3. Pour the dressing over the salad ingredients and toss gently to coat.
  4. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.


  • For a creamier texture, add 1-2 tablespoons of crumbled blue cheese instead of feta.
  • If you don’t have fresh parsley, you can substitute it with another herb like basil or oregano.
  • Want to add more crunch? Include 1/2 cup chopped cucumber or bell pepper.
  • Feeling fancy? Grill or roast the tomatoes for a smoky flavor twist.
