    Very much liked this salad. Did not add more salt because feta had plenty. Very impressed!  -  17 Sep 2017


    My husband made this last night with only a couple of substitutions - I don't care for chickpeas so he used great northern beans instead, roma tomatoes from our garden instead of grape tomatoes, and we didn't have white balsamic vinegar so he used a little regular balsamic and white vinegar combined. Delicious!!! We ate as a side dish with grilled chicken and it was a perfect meal. I brought some for lunch today and cannot wait to eat it.  -  20 Aug 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very nice salad. Definitely mix the dressing ingredients separately as noted by other reviewers. I took it to a party and served it on shredded lettuce. I'm now using the leftovers in tossed salad.  -  22 Jul 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
