This is a common and colorful side dish for our summer cookouts. It's such a hit that I get complaints if I don't make it. Even the youngsters love this mix of fresh vegetable and light dressing! Regular black olives can be substituted for the Greek olives if you don't care for their flavor.

Yummy! So happy to use produce from our garden. I didn t have bottled dressing so just used olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I had never added basil to this salad before. Thanks for the idea. It added wonderful flavor. Read More

One of my favorite dishes. The seasonings and color are very palate pleasing; to the eye and to the taste buds. Read More

I ve made this salad a lot this summer and we love it! The bottled dressing makes it so easy to put together. I don t have fresh herbs so I just sprinkled a little of each dried. The feta cheese makes this so good! My only issue is that a whole 16 oz bottle of dressing is way too much I only use about 8 oz. Read More

This was pretty good. The bulk of the flavor comes from the Greek dressing so make sure you pick a good one! I don't normally buy bottled dressings so I wasn't sure which to get. I bought one of the famous brands ahem rhymes with raft. I wouldn't recommend using theirs. The dressing isn't affecting my rating though since it's one I chose. However I did find using a full bottle to be a LOT of dressing so use your judgement on that one. I appreciate the time saved by using a bottled dressing but next time I will just make my own. I also had to increase the fresh basil and oregano because we could barely taste it. Read More
