Made as the salad course of a fancy Italian dinner party, I wanted an olive-based recipe that was unique, would be best made ahead & also lend itself to expansion. This was a great choice & I was esp pleased to make 1 of Papa D's recipes for my guests. Fresh basil can be hard to find here, but the cubed feta was packed in herbs & olive oil, so I was well on my way. I added 1/4 cup orange juice to the olive mixture & loved the citrus flavor infusion the zest & juice created. My expanded version added tomato, red onion & cucumber. Pics of the recipe as written & of my expanded version have been posted. :-)
