"This is my adaptation of a dish that was put on the table when I went to a Turkish restaurant. I would suggest using fresh feta from a Mediterranean/Greek grocer, packaged feta can be overly dry and salty. I also like to make an Italian variation using Ricotta Salata cheese, which is not the soft cheese used in baked ziti but a semi soft cheese made from sheep's milk.This cheese can be found in supermarkets with a good cheese section or at an Italian deli/Salumeria. I prefer not to over dress the salad simply using a little bit of red wine vinegar and a drizzle of olive oil on top. This is great with grilled meats or fish and great for those hot summer days."

"I absolutely love this combination of ingredients. The salad has a wonderful fresh and light flavor. The fresh lemon juice and parsley is key to the fresh flavor; don't skip it! Thanx for sharing this recipe!"
"Simple, flavorful, and so easy to throw together. I've been making salads like these for a long time now- this one is good too. I'll be trying it with crumbled goat cheese instead of feta next time."
"This was so delicious and easy to prepare. I used halved grape tomatoes, but otherwise followed the recipe as written. This does make a great side dish (or starter) and pairs with the pita perfectly. Thanks for sharing this lovely salad. Made for Spring PAC 2013."
"This is a delicious salad. I actually make something very similar to this regularly, just because I usually have most of the ingredients around all the time. I also add some fresh Greek oregano, as that grows rampant in the garden."
"Pretty good. I think I'll use a little more vinegar next time to kick up the flavor. But overall it was a good fresh salad."
"Great salad. A lovely blend of flavors. Quick and easy to make and very pretty, too. I served it with Italian pasta."
" a very nice salad thank you for posting it dee"
