Equipment

  • Small Food Processor or Bullet / High Speed Blender

Ingredients

For the salad…

  • 6 medium heirloom tomatoes (I used very ripe ox-heart tomatoes - approximately 850 grams/30 ounces)
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil (good quality)
  • ¼ cup small basil leaves or micro basil
  • Sea salt

For the whipped feta…

  • 1 ½ cups feta (crumbled) (approximately 230 grams/8.10 ounces)
  • cup cream cheese (approximately 80 grams/2.8 ounces)
  • ¼ cup basil leaves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions

  • Gently wash your ox-heart tomatoes, shake to remove the excess water, cut off the tops and bottoms then slice into wedges. Transfer to a bowl and season with some sea salt, to allow them to release their flavours.
  • Place the crumbled feta in a small food processor and pulse until smooth, add the chopped basil leaves, cream cheese and olive oil and pulse until smooth.
  • Smear the whipped feta on one side of a salad platter, pile the tomato wedges on one side, then drizzle over the olive oil and then scatter with the basil leaves. Serve immediately.
