      Very very yummy. I loved the toasted pine nuts. I omitted olives because I hate them, used greek basil because I could. Otherwise made as stated. Made for ZWT 9 for the Tasty Testers

      Made as written, mmm, this is Excellent, Nancy! I was horrified to find as I started prep, that I had no feta cheese! Not knowing what to sub, I simply made it without ........ I will make this again with feta, but I've got to say, it's really really good even without it! super healthy too! very glad I tried this recipe, made for PRMR tag game, thank you Nancy!

      DH and I liked that this recipe is really easy for a weeknight meal, with ingredients that we typically have on hand. I used kalamata olives for the olives. Given the ingredient list, and that we love all ingredients individually, I expected to love this dish, but instead just thought it was average. It was fresh tasting, pretty on the plate, and easy to make, which I appreciated. Made for ZWT9
