    Used different ingredients. I love this recipe...although I've made a few slight changes to it. I add feta cheese. It's best to get the block kind of feta and break it up into big chunks b/c when you mix the whole salad, it'll break up the feta. Already crumbled or cubed feta breaks down too much. Also, try 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar instead of lemon juice or half the lemon juice and a little red wine vinegar. I sometimes sprinkle with a little oregano.  -  24 Jul 2008

    Something else. I used only half a pack of pasta and it made 3 big servings. I also used half a red onion only. Then I added about 100g cubed feta cheese  -  01 Oct 2009

    Used different ingredients. Very nice salad, however I did add more seasonings than called for. To make it a little more Greek, I also added feta cheese. Thanks!  -  24 Jul 2008
