"This simple and refreshing salad is a darling on a hot summer day. Including the best produce of summer's bounty, it extends our favorite combination of tomato and feta. I recommend using different tomatoes, for a mix of textures, but use what you have on hand! Lime is what gives this salad a real flavor kick, but you can substitute it with lemon juice or white or balsamic vinegar. If you don’t have basil, parsley and mint can be great swaps."
