This is pretty easy and very tasty. For our personal tastes, I use about 2/3 of a red onion, thinly sliced on a mandoline. We also use either cherry tomatoes halved, or plum tomatoes cut into eights. Finally, for the dressing we use a bit more vinegar, just a pinch of sugar and simply whisk it into emulsifying. We do NOT add the feta at this time. Mix it all together in a big bowl and let sit in the fridge covered for a few hours and the flavors will meld so well. THEN we add the feta right before serving. Yum.
Pros: Yield, Quick, Good Value, Easy, Healthy, Will Make Again

This is good if you make it fresh and eat it right away, but it is amazing if you make it the day before. Reserve the feta, allow the vegetables to marinate in the vinaigrette in the fridge overnight, then sprinkle with the feta and serve. If you can't find heirlooms, 6-7 roma tomatoes work well. Thinly sliced bell pepper is a great addition. It is my family's preference to use the whole red onion rather than just half. I also like to serve it over a bed of greens. This is a very beautiful salad!
Pros: Yield, Good Value, Easy, Healthy, Appearance, Adaptable, Impressive, Will Make Again

Love the bell pepper idea!
I make this salad all the time the same way you do (marinate in fridge and add feta before serving) but NEVER thought to use the bell peppers! I have a batch in the fridge right now marinating with peppers and just "stole" a bite and wow - the peppers taste amazing and should certainly be considered! Thanks!
