Tomato, Feta, Anchovy salad

This is great on a hot day with grilled bread and butter and a cup of soup. Soak 6-8 anchovie fillets in 2-3 tab. of red wine vinegar for oh about 20 min. Slice a small red onion into thin rings and place on top of 6 large ripe juicy tomatoes that have been thick sliced and laid out on a nice platter and then sprinkle with Minced parsley, I use about 6 tab. add some minced marjoram or oragano I prefer the marjoram then cut about 2 oz of feta in to small cubes and scatter over the tomatoes cut your soaked anchovies crosswise in half and drape over the salad now scatter 1/2 cup of olives I use garlic stuffed olives then add evoo and salt and fresh cracked pepper on top of everything.
enjoy

I hope you like it as much as I do. It's a favorite around here I like it with fresh goat cheese crumbled over it too.
I adore cheese so any kind will do

Anchovies and tomatoes are a match made in heaven. No matter how you serve them IMHO. Then Feta, well, that's a bonus!!!

My favourite way to eat them is to lay a couple of filets of anchovies over top a piece of bruccetta and give them a quick broil, just enough to heat the top and melt the parmesan. The fresh, sweet tomato with the salty anchovy is just such a wonderful combination....
But that salad is going to happen tomorrow night served with some pasta. Thanks!

Now that sounds like a winner we love bruschetta and this is yummy. Come Sunday it will be made for us. Thanks for the idea.
