      I served this chilled and it worked really well with the flavors developing. I also used brown rice because it is what I keep in the house and like Evelyn I went for dried oregano. Made for ZWT4.

      This was excellent and very tangy! The fresh oregano is a nice touch. We used brown rice, half the cheese, just a tablespoon of the oil and a mix of Kalamata and Manzanilla olives (which were great in it). I omitted the salt and had to leave out the spinach, since it was all finished at the last minute - but honestly I don't think it needed it. The two of us easily at this as a meal, but I think it would be great as a picnic side dish.

      Good salad definitely! I found the cooking time on the rice didn't match my stove, but no mind, next time will cook rice as I usually do. I also think next time I will slice the spinach or tear it into pieces. I'm keeping this one though. Thanks for your recipe!!!
