I've been making this salad for some time and it always gets rave reviews. I usually stuff a pita with this salad and some hummus together. Mmmmmm.
I have made this several times now and am just getting around to posting a review. I find myself using this often with the produce from a summer garden. I have subbed whole black olives if that was what I had on hand. Terrific recipe Bunny!
Very tasty salad. I know oregano is a key ingredient to Greek salads, but I don't care for it, so I left it out and added basil instead. A definite keeper of a recipe. Thanks for sharing it.
