Mirko, this makes a great meal all by itself, and when fresh tomatoes are around, nothing beats a recipe like this!

This makes a good mid-day snack for those watching their weight. And I recommend not eating anything heavy after 6:00PM, so a salad like this is a great choice for a later evening meal.

Re: Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese

This recipe is the combination of the fatty vegetable as well as the non-fatty vegetable. Even if you eat the food more than your daily input then it will not create any harmful effect on your body.

Tomato is a very important vegetable which contains lycopene. This pigment is a powerful antioxidant which helps in fighting cancer. Tomato helps in cases of congestion of the liver as well as for dissolving gallstones. Nicotinic acid in tomatoes can help to reduce blood cholesterol, thus helps prevent heart diseases.

Thank you for your post. Your recipe sounds great.

Re: Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese

The recipe is healthy but i have to ask does cheese increasing the percentage of fat in the dish?

Re: Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese

Yes, but the dry cheeses such as Feta are actually more a source of calcium than fat - the processed, yellow, fake cheeses are the ones that really aren't cheese; they are concocted fat to taste like cheese. I believe that natural, dry cheese is a good source of calcium, and Feta makes dishes taste great - just use sparingly.

Re: Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese

I'd rather use Olive oil for garnishing.. Although absence of cheese will make this diet fat free...
