This is a delightful salad with a wonderful blend of flavors. I made this for the Make Mine Vegan Challenge for ZWT9. To make it vegan I made a feta cheese substitute according to a recipe I found on happyherbivore.com. I layered the ingredients rather than mixing them but otherwise prepared the salad exactly as written.
What a wonderful explosion of flavors! Like one other reviewer, I added a bit of vinegar - I had some white balsamic in a little spray bottle, so I squirted a few times. Used a mixture of black Greek olives and green fresh cured olives. Sliced the cuke real thin and used as a base for the other stuff - it seemed to absorb the flavors of the oregano and EVOO nicely.<br/>My friend said she wish I could give it 12 stars!<br/>made for ZWT9 - Soup a Stars
Made for a quick lunch. As good as greek salad gets - especially if you have 'real' vine-ripened tomatoes.
A nice simple salad that I enjoyed on this hot summer day in July. I used fresh oregano from my herb garden. Great flavors! Thanks! Made for ZWT by a Hot Stuff.
Except for subbing fresh oregano for dried, I wouldn't change a thing. Oh, one thing: added a light sprinkle of sherry wine vinegar. Forgot about that. Really like the capers! Reviewed for ZWT 6.
Yum! This was so simple and yet so good. Very easy to make ahead and very refreshing to eat. Thanks Julie for a nice keeper. Made by an Unruly Under the Influence for ZWT6.
A simple and delicious blend of Mediterranean flavors. The recipe was reduced to 2 generous servings. The finished salad was sprinkled with fresh oregano. Made for *PAC Fall 2009*
So good on this 4th of July. A great recipe that is cooling, great use of summer vegetables, and the taste sunsational. I followed this exactly except I also used some fresh snow pea pods, and a white onion since that is all from the garden. This tasted so fresh and wonderful I will use this often as it exemplifies "summer" in Maryland. Love the capers. Thank you so much Julie! Made for *ZWT4* July 2008.
I loved the fact that I could prepare it ahead of time.I admit I didn't put the oregano; not my favourite herb, but I did add some red wine vinegar and let it settle a couple hours before serving.I made this for WT 4. Thanks for sharing. Rita
this recipe was great! i cut the recipe in half since it was just 2 of us but there was still so much left after we were done with dinner...cut in half this recipe still made enough for a side dish for 4. really easy & convenient to throw together & let chill til you have the rest of dinner ready. made for zwt4.
