Reviews for Greek Macaroni Salad
"I can eat just this anytime! Jimmy not so much - hates feta cheese?"
"This salad is wonderfull. I have been making it for years. It is also my Mother-in-laws all time favorite"
"Very flavorful and delicious. Great replacement for salad with mayo dressing."
"Just made this salad, it's very good. However, I reduced salt to 1/2 teaspoon because feta is very salty and it was just right. I also reduced the olive oil to less than 1/4 cup and it didn't affect the end result."
