I had this recipe once at a friends house and was blown away. This is probably my favourite meal ever. I server it with a side of grilled chicken breast and it's complete. Some posters have commented on the overpowering of the lemon juice but I totally have to disagree. It's absolutely perfect as the recipe states. It's also delicious if you throw in some diced cucumber. If I had to live off of one meal for the rest of my life this would be it! I bring it to every party I go to and always carry a few copies of the recipe because at least one person asks for it! Read More

I took this dish to a couple of parties and I am still getting emails from people asking for the recipe. The last time I made this I added some artichoke hearts and used herbed feta cheese instead of plain. Very good!!! Read More

This is a good recipe the feta cheese makes it sooo tasty! I substituted sun dried tomatoes in oil for the fresh. Will make again. Read More

This is so much like a mediterranean salad I had on a trip to San Francisco. We had it with our grilled chicken. Only addition I made was some chopped cucumber. Will make this often this summer. Read More

I made this recipe for a 4th of July party and it was a hit! I did reduce the lemon juice a bit added a splash of red wine vinegar and used grape tomatoes cut in half instead of cutting a whole tomato. I made it the night before and added a little bit more olive oil along with a pinch of salt and pepper and stirred it again before serving. Everyone just loved it! I will definitely make it again.

just made this tonight --- added a baja citris grilled chicken to the recipe and just served it warm over the top and it was delicious! I skipped the parsley because I didn't have it and would skip it again. Very simple flavor but enough flavor to have you coming back for me. I am looking forward to lunch tomorrow. Read More
