    This was really good and you can totally expand on this recipe to your liking. Made as written except threw in some leftover dill I had from making tzatziki sauce and added some fresh lemon juice to the dressing - this was an all-around hit. Thank you for the wonderful recipe - going in the rotation for sure.

    Very good recipe. But I'm an experimenter and also do alterations and/or add-ons to recipes. So I added a hopped yellow bell pepper, used (2) English cucumbers pealed and chopped instead, added juice of 1 lemon, added 3/4 tsp sweet basil, added 1-1/2 tbsp sugar and onion and garlic powder to taste, used 1/2 cup Zesty Italian dressing instead of 1/2 cup olive oil, 4 shakes red wine vinegar instead, and salt/pepper to taste. Came out great me and my family loved it. Thanks.

    This was well received at our knitting pot luck. I used 1 1/2 cups of orzo and it made plenty. Next time I will add some crushed garlic to the dressing. Thanks for posting.

    This was a delicious light and fresh tasting salad. I added about 1/4 cup of fresh dill. I'll be making this again and again. Thanks for posting!

    This is the best Greek salad I have ever tasted. All of the flavors blend together perfectly. It makes a great side dish - or main course. It never lasts very long when I make it!! Thanks, Christine! Can't wait to see more of your recipes.
