"I didn't have tomatoes! I'd used 2 thinly sliced REGULAR cukes, about 3/4 cup thinly sliced radishes, 1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning, 1 small red onion, thinly sliced, 1/4 tsp. salad seasoning instead of salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper, and LESS feta cheese since I'm the only one eating this salad. I think this recipe is wonderful! I admit that I am NOT an olive fan! I omitted the olives called for in the recipe! The dressing made for a tangy, tasty addition to this colorful salad! Thank you, Arge Salvatori, for sharing this recipe from your Dad! This is a recipe I plan to use often-I love the flavor! delowenstein"
