    I took this to work, as one co-worker is vegetarian. Everyone raved about the salad. Three minor adjustments: I added a whole (6oz) carton of herb feta cheese, used a small can of olives and added 1/2 chopped green pepper.  -  24 Feb 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was a big hit. I now know what I'll be bringing to BBQs this summer. I took the advice of others and halved the olives and increased the feta to 3 oz or so. I also added 1tsp of dried oregano.  -  27 Jun 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Good salad. I recommend adding more feta cheese.  -  02 May 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
