I used sun-dried tomatoes, Greek olives and added some toasted pine nuts. I also used balsamic vinegar. It was delicious. I served it with grilled shrimps w/garlic on the side. This is more a 'summer' meal, but I live in AZ and like it year round. Oh, and I also used the fresh basil rather than tarragon, which I couldn't find fresh here. At the end I added some fresh lemon zest too.
Excellent! Full of fresh flavors and tastes like summer! I subbed dried tarragon for fresh & yellow bell peppers and used a few green olives w/ pimentos, it's all I had. I think any briney olive would work, in a pinch. I was skeptical about using tarragon and boy, oh boy, make sure you include thi in the dressing. I mixed the dried herbs with the lemon juice, red wine vinegar & EVOO, shook and poured over the salad. YUM! It didn't even need S&P! Thanks for posting MacChef, it's a winner and will be made all summer long!
THis was very very good... I didi triple the sauce and left out the tomatoes and olives...
it was great even with leaving out those items...
This is an easy salad to prepare and its good too!! Used fresh basil instead of tarragon and next time I may add some fresh garlic to add some more flavor. Don't skimp on the feta cheese and olives, as they add alot of flavor also. Another thought, I might use those salty greek olives they sell at the olive bars instead of regular canned black olives to increase the flavor as well. One more thing, I would decrease the amount of tomatoes and increase the amount of feta cheese next time, just personal preference.
This was really light and refreshing. Made it with whole wheat couscous and with basil instead of the tarragon and oregano. I added some mustard and salt to the dressing as well. I will make this again for sure. Thanks for sharing.
Very excellent. Served with grilled shrimp on a hot day.
Pretty good! One of the only pasta salads we've actually finished.
I love tabbouleh but my husband doesn't care for it. This seemed to have many of the same ingredients, so I gave it a try. I really liked it and so did he. I would recommend making only what you will eat at one time because it did not taste as good the next day after being refrigerated overnight. I still prefer taboulleh but will make this for my husband.
This is delicious! Very light and refreshing. I had to resist eating the whole thing. Definitely a keeper.
This is a great recipe as it is so versatile. It seems that you may add/omit ingredients per your taste without compromising the freshness and flavor of the salad. I had some fresh basil, parsley, and mint, so I threw those in. I had some artichoke hearts; threw those in. Toasted pine nuts? Sure, why not? Love this. Thanks!
