Delicious! I was a little timid of the dressing from the review prior. I tasted it and didn't like the dressing on its own, but took a leap of faith and poured it on. It marries all the ingredients together. Give it a try.

We weren't fans of the dressing (we think it was the mustard) on this salad, so I'm glad that I served the dressing as a side at the table instead of dressing the salad. When each of us took seconds, we all preferred just a drizzle of olive oil over the salad. But it was a great way to get a different kind of salad onto the table, and we loved the tomato, cucumber, feta, and basil combination! This was healthier and less fussy than serving a more traditional caprese.

This was an outstanding salad. I would make this many times over. It's worth getting the good tomatoes and a quality feta!
