HOW TO CHOOSE TOMATOES
When shopping for tomatoes, look for plump, heavy tomatoes with smooth skins. I think the best way to evaluate the quality of tomatoes is to smell them. They should be fragrant, which indicates that tomatoes were ripened by the sun. If they have no aroma at all, the tomatoes were probably picked when immature, and they are lacking sweetness and flavor.

WHERE TO BUY THE BEST FETA CHEESE
When shopping for feta cheese, try to find the kind that is sold in in bricks and stored in brine. That's the best stuff. This feta cheese can be found in large health food stores. Of course, you can buy feta cheese on Amazon. When given an option between cow's or sheep's milk feta, I'd always pick sheep's milk.
HOW TO MAKE TOMATO FETA SALAD

2. In a large mixing bowl, add tomatoes and the dressing. Mix everything well.
3. Arrange the salad onto the serving plate and top with feta cheese. Drizzle with balsamic reduction if desired.
