This is really a fantastic recipe, it went over really well with my visitors, had to print out an extra two copies. I marinated for 1-1/2 days and they were perfect. I really loved the lemon that came through in the flavours. I used 1lb of Feta which I crumbled and used yellow grape tomatoes. This will be a very popular recipe that I will use again and again.

Used the kalamata, can of whole black olives and some jarred green olives with pimentoes. A belgian feta which I didn't care for and which was was too soft so the overall appearance of dish wasn't as appealing as I thought it was going to be. But the flavor was great.
