“An interesting combination of sweet and salty flavors gives this Greek salad a delicious twist. And the tart chewiness of the dried cranberries makes a wonderful complement to the salty feta cheese. I often take this to work for lunch,” says Carine Nadel in Laguna Hills, California.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 18, 2012

I'm confused: do I use raspberries as in the title of the recipe or cranberries as listed in the ingredients. Which is incorrect? Eventually I'll try it both ways.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 22, 2011

This salad was fantastic! It had a wonderful mix of flavors. I was looking for a side salad to go with pasticchio, so I left out the chicken and pitas. I was out of red onion and cucumber, but substituted green onions and zucchini and used Kraft Light Raspberry Vinaigrette. It was soooo delicious I've already had a request for the recipe. I can't wait to try it with the chicken in the pitas!
