Reviews for Grilled Greek Potato Salad
"We loved this salad, even the family members who don't like potato salad liked this one!"
"Used Feta cheese instead of the mozzarella and used the seedless cuke. Was very good."
"This is great; I did not use cucumber as hubby is not fond of it, and used feta as another reviewer said to make it more Greek. A great change from mayo based salad, and I really liked it served warm."
"Outstanding!! Followed the recipe exactly, adding some diced pepperoncini with the fresh cut veggies. Can't wait for the fresh veggies this summer. Thanks for sharing!!"
"This is my new favorite! I took it to a potluck and it received MANY compliments!! Really pretty easy to make as well! This will be a regular at our house!"
"I added sliced kielbasa to the roasting pan with the potatoes, and then added the rest of the ingredients for just few minutes under the heat, for a really good warm salad."
"My children do not like mayonaise based salads. This recipe was delicous for the entire family. We used Feta cheese to make it more authentic and left out the mozzarella."
"A very refreshing change from potato salad made with mayonnaise. A hit with family and friends."
"This salad was a hit with all of our family. My husband already said I'll need to make this again. We think it's good enough for a main course."
"It was ok, i think i will try the feta cheese next time."
"I'm not one for potato salads that have a heavy dressing and was glad to see one that look refreshing. It seemed like an awful lot of chopping. The salad itself wasn't terrible, but didn't "WOW" me in the taste department. It was more like a chopped salad with the addition of grilled potatoes."
"I made this twice a few summers ago and absolutely love it!! It is such a great alternative to the traditional mayo based potato salad. This is a must have for any picnic!"
"I left out the olives and used feta instead of mozzarella. This was definitely a winner - it had a lot of flavor and with all those fresh veggies, it had a very summery taste. This will definitely make an appearance at my next barbecue!"
"Excellent recipe. Really enjoyed the fresh vegetables with the grilled potatoes... the use of olive oil was also great"
"This is fabulous! The only thing I did differently was that I used feta cheese instead of mozzarella to make the salad more Greek!"
"It is the onion not the mayo that becomes toxic when left out."
"Greek vinaigrette mix can be purchased from Penzeys Spices, (Penzeys.com), a do-not miss company! Better, fresher than those dressing packets from the stores! The have the best spices and mixes that will make all your recipes winners! I don't cook with any other spices!"
"I love this salad. I could eat it every week!"
"My sister made this for graduation. She added the potatoes when they were still warm and the cheese melted a little bit. It was the best potato salad I have ever had. It has become a family favorite"
"this is a delicious salad - I didn't use the cheese as I had two types of meat with the meal. Next time I will include the cheese."

"Feta! Not mozzeralla as Ahalf suggests is what this recipe needs."
"This salad cries for Feta cheese rather than the mozzarella."
"i got my grill basket at a pampered chef party - works great"
"Hello. There are 2 grill baskets on the website at Lowe's Home Improvement Store, although one is called a "shaker basket." Hope this helps."
"Please, where do I find Greek vinaigrette? Or, how do I make it? Thanks!"
"Where did you find a grill basket?"
"EXCELLENT and will be making this salad again and again. I made it exactly as directed although the next time I will replace the mozzarela cheese with feta for I and my family feel it imparts more flavor."
