Vegan Apricot Tomato Feta Salad

June 5, 2023
Summer is finally here and I love to take advantage of the myriad of fruits, veggies, and herbs that become bountiful with the season. I generally chop up whatever is currently on hand, toss it in a vinaigrette, and store it in the fridge to make a cold salad that will keep my body cool. I just planted the most gorgeous basil into my garden, so I used some of the fresh leaves to toss together with some apricots and tomatoes. The sweetness from the apricots and the acidity from the tomatoes make a perfectly refreshing pair.

This salad is super simple to prepare and is great to make ahead of time, as it tastes better after the flavors have sat for a bit. You can easily double or triple this recipe to bring to a picnic or gathering, or just to have something ready to eat for the week. This can be served just as it is, or you can enjoy it over a bed of lettuce. I suggest adding walnuts or almonds on top, but I did not have any currently available to me.
