This recipe is wonderful! Everyone that I have served it to loves it. But then I prepare it exactly as written. If you use EVOO, fresh dill and parsley, raw shrimp, fresh lemon, imported feta, etc. you will have a superb dish. I'm always amazed at some of the substitutions people use and their critique of the recipe. There is no way the end product will be as good as the intended recipe with some of these modifications!

Devine. Have made it so many times. I added halved kalamata olives and small grape tomatoes. EVERYONE asks for the recipe!!! A real crowd pleaser!!! Yum, I am drooling.

I love Ina! This recipe turned out really wonderfully. I didn't have dill on hand, but otherwise followed the recipe as stated, just cut in half. It is a very fresh-tasting dish with the parsley and lemon. It's also a huge serving (2 cups per); light, but satisfying, too. Will definitely make again.

I watched the repeat of the Barefoot Contessa's episode featuring this dish and could not wait to try it. I hope my guests get here soon or there won't be much left for them! It is an explosion of flavors and I would only consider adding more pepper.

I really liked this one, I tweeked it quite a bit. It is pretty salty and tangy and I liked that. I used jarred basil and dill seasoning mix. I also used a tomato basil feta and precooked and peeled shrimp. I wish I had had this recipe for the company picnic a few weeks ago, I think it would have been a big hit!

This is awesome! I halved the recipe with excellent results. I omitted dill and substituted cilantro for parsley to suit my family's taste. Fabulous and SO simple! Plus, it is really ready to eat as soon as it's done. The extra marination time doesn't hurt, but go ahead and eat it right away.

I love this recipe. Lemon lovers will love this dish. I think this attractive salad is even better with half of the feta and shrimp, which also helps to cut costs. I was going to submit this recipe I like it so well. Thank you, Juenessa

This was alright, a little dry but good flavor. I'll have to play with it a little next time.

This was light and refreshing! I cut down the oil a bit...used just enough to work everything together. (I saw this episode and she used so much olive oil!!) Thanks for posting!!
