    Basic salad recipe. Not a keeper though...see Greek Pasta Salad I which is also on allrecipes. It is a more flavourful version of this recipe. Exactly the same except with more tasty stuff in it.  -  25 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I really enjoyed this. I had a family member over for dinner who didn't like mushrooms, so I left them out and used diced cucumber instead. I also chopped kalamata olives. I tried cutting back on the oil, because it looked like a lot, but I would use the full amount next time I make it. It might also benefit from using a little lemon juice in place of some of the vinegar, but all around really good as is. Thanks Kelly.  -  27 Jun 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good base recipe. I read some of the other reviews and followed what they did. I made this for a corporate luncheon for 40 people. I substituted a few things. I used cheese tortelini, red onions instead of green onions, added some green peppers and reduced the amount of mushrooms and used pitted kalamata olives instead of canned black olives. It got rave reviews. People were scooping it into paper cups to take home. Definitely one to make again and try more variations.  -  05 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
