This dish is so flavorful and yet simple to make! Very impressive and I can't wait to serve it to dinner guests! I had no mint or scallions so they were left out. For the za' atar spice I used approximately 1/2tsp majoram, 1/2tsp oregano, and 1/4tsp thyme. I used about 1tbs of dried parsley, since I didn't have any fresh. I also used black olives, instead of kalamata olives, and the entire 12oz jar of peppers (since they didn't have a smaller size). I put the dish together and served the next night along with a meatless meatball spaghetti dinner. Mmmmm mmmm...this is going to be a regular for me :)
This was a hit for the evening! Everyone raved about it...so glad a doubled it as they ate it all, and I had to make copies of the recipe. I could not find Za'atar either so I looked it up and made the combo of the spices it has in it...turned out fabulous.
This is now my favorite salad ever!!! Thanks so much for posting!
love this salad! I use apple cider vinegar & marinated artichokes
I made this for DH's work crew. They really liked it. I liked that fact that I usually always have these ingrdients in my pantry. The flavors melded wonderfully. Thank you for posting.
Fantastic salad! A wonderful combination of ingredients and flavors! I really loved this, thanks.
Great side salad. I didn't include the chickpeas but the rest as written. I used homemade roasted red peppers. Served it with Mediterranean Chicken Breasts. It made for a great meal. DH just loved it. Will have often.
Loved this recipe!!!!! Have no idea what Za'atar spice mix is (the large store did not stock it either) so I blended 1/4 ts each of fresh coriander, dried marjoram, dried oregano and dried thyme into the oil and vinegar mix. I had no paresly or mint so I left those out. It sat in the fridge for 1 hour and it was perfect, I served it on top of crusty bread (like a bruschetta) yum!!!! Thanks for the great recipe.
I liked the idea of all of these flavors, but I was disappointed with the flavor and it did not go over well are our party. (The artichokes were mostly picked out!) I did not have nor could find Za'tar spice. After reading other reviews that may be a must more than an optional I guess. Also, I would use more feta (8oz), double the artichoke hearts and use cakamata olives that are not pitted. For some reason, the pitted ones that I bought tasted much different and I think they ruined the salad. I will most likely try this again with those changes! Thanks for sharing!
