Make the most of late summer/early fall tomatoes with this warm and satisfying salad. Just a bit of melted feta cheese gives this dish a rich and creamy flavor. In fact, it tastes so good you may not even realize how beneficial it is for your body! Like many fruits and vegetables, tomatoes are a rich source of vitamins C and K. They also offer protection against prostate cancer and breast cancer, and they help keep blood pressure in check.

Heat the oven to 400°F.
Tear off 2 large pieces of aluminum foil (about 16 inches long).
Cut out the cores of the tomatoes. Slice the tomatoes into ¼-inch thick rounds. Place each sliced tomato in the middle of the foil. Dividing evenly, crumble the feta over the tops and sprinkle the oregano and pepper.
Seal the foil tightly so no steam can escape. Place both packages on a sheet pan. Bake for 15 minutes.
Divide the greens between two plates. Carefully open the tomato packages (being careful of the steam) and, using a spatula, lift the tomatoes onto the greens. Drizzle any extra juices over the top. Squeeze the lemon over the greens and add a little extra pepper, if you like.
