    Nice mix of veggies and the dressing was wonderful! We really enjoyed the black olives, nice addition, especially with the Italian dressing. Being near the end of summer, I have lots of regular tomatoes, so I used them quartered instead of cherry tomatoes. I didn't season the tomatoes becauce of the black olives, didn't think the extra salt was necessary but did use the pepper.Very good, thanks for sharing.

    Great salad! Looks beautiful and tastes delicious, it wasn't drowning in dressing. Love all the textures and crunch. Thanks for posting this healthy and delicious recipe.

    Great salad. Made this for our July first holiday. Made as posted, marinated over night making for a very flavorful salad. Looks wonderful in a glass serving bowl and very impressive on the table. Thank you Evelyn.

    MADE FOR ZWT 4. Wow, Evelyn, this is a banquet of a salad!! I'm sure it will feed more than 6 - 8, and it will be perfect as part of a buffet. We loved the healthy mix of raw veggies! I had to keep my husband away while it was marinating! He loves salads! I do think it needs coarse black pepper, and next time I'll use more Parmesan -- a lovely taste in salads. I added extra virgin olive oil, as the Italian salad dressing I bought didn't have much oil in it. Thanks for a very colourful and healthy salad. Can be a vegetarian meal, with bread.


<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
