Kentucky Heirloom Tomatoes and Feta = Heaven

Can you believe we eat these things? These gnarly, cracked, "cat-faced" and "ox-hearted" and not entirely red incredible heirloom tomatoes that don't look much like the supermarket ideal? We eat them, and we love them enough to compare them to a symphony, because of their marvelous tomato flavors.

One of the constants in summer meals at our house is Tomato Feta Salad. I like it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. As the recipe suggests, the basic salad has four ingredients and takes three minutes to prepare. From that fine foundation, you can embroider in many directions, most of which add no more than another couple of minutes to the preparation.

Lexingtonians, try this salad with Bleugrass Chevre's goat feta. This is a summer-only salad, something we may get to eat for six weeks at most. Make it with the best ingredients central Kentucky has to offer.
