    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)
