This really suited my taste, so how could I possibly pass this up? Very flavorful, even with only 1 tablespoon oil and low-fat feta. I recommend using the best quality sun-dried tomatoes for this salad, and I prefer not to soften them with boiling water as I like the chewy texture. I used baby white potatoes as that was what I had on hand. Next time, I might add a bit more potato, maybe 1 1/2 lbs and keep everything else the same as per review. Many thanks for this great recipe!
Loved all the flavors in this. It definitely tasted Greek. I followed other reviewers and used 1.5 pounds of potatoes and 1 tablespoon of oil (I made up the missing liquid with more lemon juice). I also ommitted the sugar and decreased the salt. Yummy. Served 5 as a side dish.
Very nice salad. I also mixed all the vegetables together and then added the dressing. Thank you for sharing.
