Hello blog friends, this is Josh, the other half of Two Peas and Their Pod. I usually stay “behind the scenes” when it comes to the blog, but I wanted to write a post today. Often I am asked, if I really like eating all of the vegetables and salads we prepare, and the answer is, YES! I love a good piece of meat, but I also enjoy vegetables. We recently made a tomato feta salad that was most delicious and beyond easy.
As most of you know, we just started a kitchen remodel. I am doing most of the work-don’t worry, I have built houses before and I know what I am doing. Construction, especially the demolition, is fun for me. Maria is not as excited about the remodel as I am, well, she is excited about the finished kitchen, but not so much the dust. She is hanging in there though.
So while we are remodeling you will see easy recipes on our blog. Most of our recipes are easy anyways, so don’t expect too much change, but we will minimize our work in the kitchen for a few months. I am sure Maria will use the oven as long as she can, she can’t go without baking cookies for very long.
This salad is a great example of a simple summer meal. It is fresh, easy, and tastes really good. You can’t beat fresh garden tomatoes with basil. We are on a feta kick at our house, so we topped the tomatoes with feta too. I could eat this salad every day. I might try adding bacon sometime, but this salad is really good by itself.
Oh-don’t forget about our feta giveaway. You have until Sunday night to leave a comment. Just visit our giveaway page. It’s a pretty sweet package. Have a great weekend!
Tomato Feta Salad

Fabulous. I am looking forward to seeing all of the light/easy summer meals! Hope the renovation goes smoothly and quickly. I bet the after pictures will be just awesome. Enjoy your weekend!
Yummy! I love such salads when it’s hot outside!
Tomatoes with feta are like a match made in heaven! I love this.
It is great to hear Josh’s voice on TP&P as well. Simple preparations are the best, especially in the summer- -or when doing construction! xo
Great post Josh! We are excited for you guys and your new kitchen. Can’t wait to see it. And until then, keep enjoying simple tasty meals!!
Hi Josh! I just bought a big beautiful tomato from the farmers this morning market and it would be perfect for this. Good luck with the kitchen project!
I know I’ll see Maria, but will we see you in San Francisco again this Fall?
Hi Josh! Maria is quite the lucky lady. I feel pretty lucky to have a hubby who cleans up all the kitchen messes from my blogging creations, but I can imagine how nice it would be if he did some of the blogging too 😉
I love easy simple recipes that use delicious ingredients. Looks great Josh 🙂
Fun seeing a post from Josh! This is a perfect summer salad.
90 degree heat calls for cold tomatoes, and you’ve dressed them up perfectly!
Great simple salad recipe. Good luck with the remodel.
Hi Josh. 🙂 Love the salad…so simple and summery. Can’t wait to try it!
Looks great Josh, gotta love a simple salad with fresh ingredients 🙂 Can’t wait to see your remodeled kitchen!
I feel your pain. We are JUST about finished with our remodel and it has been hard not to cook and bake for 4 weeks.
Good luck to you both – it’s not easy but you’ll love it.
That looks really good! Can not wait until my tomatoes are ripe. You can also slice real mozzarella cheese instead of Feta Cheese.
Wow Josh-I had been wondering if the man of the house was enjoying the veggies and salads! Because, well, the man in my house tends to moan and complain about veggies and salads. I think I can slowly win him over…in the mean time, more salad for me 🙂
An absolutely perfect recipe for this time of year. So fresh! I might also add a little drizzle of good olive oil.
Simple and perfectly delicious!
Very pretty salad!
