Mediterranean Summer Salad

"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 agree whole-heartedly with all the previous reviews! This was so delicious, yet simple. I was worried that it might be dry or bland because there didn't seem to be much dressing, but it was actually perfect. I wouldn't change a thing (except I used grape tomatoes instead of cherry tomatoes). Packed this for lunch and couldn't have been happier. Thanks for sharing. Made for Almost 5 Tag Game.

    I really enjoyed this salad. I am so tickled I found whole wheat orzo, so used that. I loved all the ingredients. I didn't have fresh basil, so used fresh parsley and oregano from the garden and added some dried basil. Thanks! Made for PRMR game.
