What a wonderful, tasty, robust salad. All the flavors screamed Greek, and it was so good! I especiallly liked the feta cheese, which I love, and the olives. Easy to make and serve. Double this for a larger group, or cut down for a smaller group. Thanks Karen for posting, I will be using this one all summer.
Colorful, delicious and very easy to prepare. The pasta salad tastes wonderful with or without the chicken. I brought the leftover to work and several people asked for the recipe. Thanks for posting.
I made this for a Cub Scout Pot Luck. (I get so tired of mac and cheese with little weenies) I really wanted to make something for the adults in the crowd. It worked! I double this recipe, but used only half the salt required. It was wonderful. I love Kalamata olives and feta cheese, great combination. Unfortunatly there wasn't anything left to bring home. I will certainly be making this one for myself soon.
I used leftover Melissa's Lemon Pepper Chicken for the chicken and mostly canned black olives. The salad turned out well like this. I would be comfortable using plain chicken and would prefer the added flavor of using kalamata olives. The cucumber was bitter - luck of the draw. I would peel it next time to alleviate that possibility.
This was good, but I gave up on making the dressing because I found that the salt would not dissolve in fresh lemon juice. (Is this because I used kosher salt?? -- I dunno) I substituted the dressing from Sackville Girl's Greek Salad (with some oregano added)and ended up with a very good salad. Thanks for posting.
Made this for Father's Day as a side dish.(no chicken). i doubled everything but the salt, used 3 t, it was a huge hit. Husband has asked for it again and he seldom does that. i did mix a little extra dressing as we like our pasta salads a little wetter. Next time i'm adding the chicken.
This is super good! And you can add so many things to it, if you like. I added zucchini that I pre-cooked and chilled, chopped spinach and pepperoni for added zip. So good for a summer night dinner. And if you make enough for left overs, all you have to do is pull it out of the fridge! Love it!
This was a very good salad recipe. It definitely tastes Greek with the feta and the kalamata olives but the dressing is very light and not over-powering like Greek salad dressings can sometimes be. I exchanged the coarsely chopped red onion for 1/4 white onion finely chopped. I also used tri-color spiral noodles since that is what I had on hand. Since this was a potluck side dish I omitted the chicken but it would be a nice light dinner with chicken or even shrimp added.
Just wonderful, Karen! I used red and yellow cherry tomatoes, and did not use the chicken, since it was a side dish for me, but it was just a beautiful dish. Thank you so much for posting.
