Well...I'm not going to give this a starred rating as I think I messed it up...As I started to make it I discovered I didn't have any dry ranch dressing so used a chive and green onion mix and added dried dill. I let it sit overnight but it just didn't taste right. I'm sure it was the mix I used. I also used the feta and a chopped tomato. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
A perfect combination of flavors and so pretty, too. I will be making this again:) Thanks for sharing another great recipe, Kittencal. Made, enjoyed, and reviewed for the Newest Zaar Tag.
