Great quick recipe but I changed it a bit. I omitted the sun dried tomatoes and just used olive oil salt and freshly ground pepper for the dressing. I also chopped all ingredients for a nice texture and added fresh oregeno. Read More

This salad was okay. I thought it might be better if I made it a day before but it turned out to be soggy. Read More

This is the best greek salad recipe I've come across. Using Kalamata olives instead of black olives is a must though. Both my husband and I thought the sun-dried tomatoes really made this salad great. Next time I will toss the salad with a dash of oil and then sprinkle the feta cheese on top. The oil from the sun-dried tomatoes turned my feta cheese pink and took away from the appearance. I may also try this salad with an infused oil instead. Read More

I didn't seed my cucumbers, and I added a tablespoon of good quality balsamic vinegar just to pick it up a little. This is exactly what a Mediterranean Greed Salad should taste like. Read More

This is absolutely the best Greek salad I've had outside of Greece! Refreshing and beautiful! Definitely use kalamata olives though. I followed the advice of other reviewers and used just 1 Tbls. of the oil and added 1 Tbls. red wine vinegar. Read More

This was a great base for a salad recipe however I found it to be a bit bland. So I added 1-2 tsp mediterranean rice seasoning a little jamaican allspice some cracked pepper and salt. Also a bunch of fresh torn spinach and some romaine...got rave reviews from all!!! Thanks Heather! Read More

This is my Greek boyfriend's favorite Greek salad ever. The sundried tomatoes really make the salad. I add a little extra olive oil and some red wine vinegar (and lots of salt and pepper). This recipe can easily be made ahead, but I add the feta just before serving. Fabulous summer salad!! Read More

Excellent recipe! I used kalamata olives instead and it was still delicious. I peeled the cucumbers, which I think takes away from the color of the salad, but I don't like the texture of the peel. I only used 1 tbs. of the sun-dried tomato oil and added 1 tbs. of red wine vinegar instead (a little more tang). Lastly, I added a bit of cumin to give it a little extra flavor. Will definitely repeat! Read More

This salad was tasty and easy to prepare. My husband ate two big bowls and we both absolutely loved it. I only put in two cucumbers instead of three but it was still delicious. If you plan to bring this to a party it needs to be made fresh before serving. I brought leftovers today for my lunch and it was runny and soggy still good but will not present well. Read More

This was a refreshing salad easy to make. I forgot to put in the sundried tomatoes but it stilled turned out wonderful! My husband loved it. It did get quite a bit runny though--I actually had to drain some of the liquid before serving it. Read More
