  1. Delicious! I had a little dish right after I made it (with balsamic vinegar), and can't wait to taste it later after it marinates a while. Great way to use up the tomatoes and cucumbers we have in our garden! I had a yellow banana pepper (little spicy), so I added about half of it chopped fine to give the final dish a little kick. Thanks for sharing, we will be having this often when we're in peak season.
  2. Very good! Made as is but omitted the olives as we don't really care for them. Thanks for posting!
  3. Delicious! I used the balsamic vinegar.. served this salad with roasted chicken. Thanks!
  4. So refreshing!! I really loved the dressing; I used red wine vinegar. I had an abundance of cherry tomatoes, so that is what I used slice in half. I will be making this again!
  5. YUMMO! This salad dressing reminds me of my fav salad at Panera Bread. LOVED this one with a Greek flare. I marinated all for about 1 hour. (only could find Feta crumbles at the market. :-) Made for the Northern Mediterranean event in Cooking Photos. BTW, this would be tasty mixed with lettuce or diced in a pita, too. So many possibilities, so little time.


<p>I love cooking Greek, but I have an American cookbook from the late 30s that I simply love. My Greek cookbooks are important to me since for many years the Greek ladies did not openly share their recipes. Their secret ingredient was coveted and they actually waited for the compliments. It took hours to prepare, so praise was important. Every holiday was a real focal point in my life because it involved the entire family and wonderful food. I love being served something that is fantastic and getting the recipe for it. Making friends feel special in my home is very important to me. <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting /></p>
