The dressing seemed to have too much oil in proportion to the rest of the ingredients. I added more lemon juice but it still lacked something for my taste. Still looking for that elusive "perfect" Greek salad dressing. Thanks for sharing! Read More

It is really good.I perfer to use the plain feta cheese instead of the flavoured one. It is best to make the night before or at least a few hours, inorder for the salad to have a better flavour. Read More

This served as a good base for my salad. I made the salad as stated adding chopped sundried tomatoes and a little extra vinegar and lemon. After refrigerating for about 5 hours I tossed with romaine and feta before serving. I recieved a lot of compliments on this one. Thanks for the recipe.:) Read More

I think I just had the best lunch I ever had. I just made up this salad and it was delicious. I didn't measure the dressing ingreadients I kind of just poured them in and tasted as I went along and it turned out fabulous. I added a large clove of garlic and next time I think I might use a small one it was a little strong and I don't think anyone will talk to me now for a week. Read More

I made this with the baked havarti chicken and it was excellent. Hubby who was skeptical and not fond of feta actually said "ok we can move to greece now";) I was actually quite proud that I made my own dresing rather than using store bought. The only thing that i changed was that i let the veggies marinate in the dressing overnight and I think it turned out excellent. Resturant quality even. Will absolutely make again. Read More

A friend of mine made this at her last party and it was so good I had to have the recipe. I make it all of the time now and everyone loves it. I do like the regular feta cheese also though. Now if they would just make low cal olive oil! Read More
