With pasta added, this gives a nice twist to the typical Greek salad. Be sure to use good-quality feta cheese, as it really makes a difference in flavor and creaminess.

I added one plum to the cherries, more oil and used fig balsamic vinegar. This was yummy good! Thanks.

This was so good! I couldn't find any orzo past so I found another small type pasta to use. This is a great summer salad and can see me taking it to potlucks and picnics. Thanks for sharing!

This was an excellent recipe. I added slightly more EVOO, based on my personal preference, and also some leftover smoked chicken. I wasn't so sure about the baby spinach, but in the end, I loved it! Great balance of flavors and textures.
