"My favorite new recipe of the summer - so yummy. I didn't make the dressing, I used Kraft Greek Vinaigrette. I have made the salad at least 3 times!"

"Very good, served it to my picky kids and they loved it too. I'm not a big fan of feta cheese but it was very good in this salad, and my feta loving hubby was happy to add more leftover feta to his already large helping!"

"I made this yesterday for my granddaughter's birthday. It was absolutely great. The vinegar & oil proportions were just perfect. The only thing I added extra was 1 teaspoon of sugar."
