    Like the flavors, like that it is a cold salad, so it is good to take to get-togethers. Worked well with reduced fat feta cheese, and does not need, in my opinion, so much olive oil -- so then it ends up healthier.  -  11 Jan 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Simple, light and very good. I could eat a pile of this. I will make it again with a bit of lemon or vinegar, but it is recommended to make as is first. This would be very good wrapped in a pita or served with pita chips.  -  21 Feb 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe is very good and fresh. I did use fresh Dill instead of the dried as called for in the recipe. I'll make this again.  -  17 Jan 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
