Every year when Spring arrives I crave salads! For the most part I crave salads that I grew up eating in Romania. My family would always serve a tomato and feta salad at the table or a fresh red cabbage salad. Just thinking about it brings back memories of summers at the dinner table outside in my parents beautiful backyard. Oh how I miss those days. Some of the best memories of my life I have in Romania!
I decided to jazz up the traditional tomato and feta salad by adding fresh basil from our garden and some delicious sun dried tomatoes. To top it all off I drizzled olive oil and sprinkled a few homemade croutons. Add some nutty couscous on the side and you have a tasty and healthy meal on the table in under ten minutes!

- 1 medium tomato
- 2 basil leaves
