"This is the best salad for home or to take anywhere. You can add any vegetables you like...fresh sweet peppers, onion, mushrooms, asparagus, chopped carrots...and the bowl always ends up cleaned of the last bit. Even if you keep it a day or so, the flavors are even better. I especially like Feta or Parmesan cheeses."

"I have made many versions of this recipe, and I have found that adding some FETA CHEESE is a wonderful addition to this dish. Also I tend to add Green and Red Bell Peppers since my kids like them so much."
