  • 300 g mayonnaise
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 8 large tomatoes, preferably heritage, plus a handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 400 g feta cheese, drained
  • 1 small bunch of fresh mint
  • plenty of extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Mix the mayonnaise, lemon juice and a couple of twists of ground black pepper in a small bowl until thoroughly combined – it should have a pourable consistency.
  • Slice the large tomatoes thinly and arrange on a serving platter. Season with a little more freshly ground black pepper and salt.
  • Crumble the feta into small chunks and scatter over the cherry tomatoes.
  • Drizzle the salad with the lemon mayonnaise. Finely shred the mint leaves and scatter over the top, finish with a good slug of olive oil, and serve.
