Four stars as written but five stars with my changes. I used a red onion and about 8 seeded Campari tomatoes. I also added a 4 oz package of crumbled basil & tomato feta cheese and a tablespoon of red wine vinegar. I served this in whole-wheat pita bread with romaine lettuce. Delicious! Read More

I made significant changes to this to give it some pizazz - hence the 3 stars. I added a diced cumcumber, 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar, 1 tsp dried oregano, and doubled most everything else. It's definitely a good base to start with and then play with your own extras. Read More

Sooooo good! I did change some things: I used purple onion and cilantro instead of parsley (just because I like the flavor better). I added a little salt and pepper to taste and an extra lemon. I could eat this everyday! Love it! Read More

This is a very good basic recipe, with a few addition it's a great salad. It really needs feta cheese, I also added a cucumber and a little of red vinegar. Very light but satisfying salad! Read More

Great salad to toss together though I recommend doing it at least 8 hours before so all the flavors can blend. I used a whole slicing tomato and whole bell pepper and cilantro instead of the parsley. I also added a tablespoon red wine vineager added oregeno and cumin for flavor as well as a salt pepper and garlic salt to taste. Next time I think I'll use a red onion but it was good with a regular Vidalia! Read More

Great dish and so healthy. I would recommend using a red onion for additional flavor and letting the salad marinate overnight. It was great as a side dish. Read More

Not bad at all for a last minute salad in a pinch with all ingredients almost always at hand. Not a big fan of the chopped onion I'd rather see it very thinly sliced. I welcomed this recipe for its lighter dressing rather than one drowning in vinegar and the chopped fresh parsley livens this up. The recipe assumes of course that you'll "salt and pepper to taste."

Brought this to a party and it was a hit! Used grape tomato's instead of romas and added feta cheese (sun dried tomato and basil). The olive oil and fresh lemon juice make an excellent dressing. Fresh and good for you. A Read More
