"All 5 members of my family get into this salad, even when our 3 children were younger! I cook the red onion first in about 1/2 cup of water and microwave in order to get some of the strong flavor out since my family finds it more tolerable that way. Plain crumbled feta cheese is very acceptable. I also cut the dressing amount exactly in half, which I find just the right amount to add flavor but not drown the salad and give the solid ingredients a chance to speak for themselves! A wonderful combination of flavors and colors to attract the eye! Not the same old boring lettuce & tomato offering, that's for sure! Try it!"

"I have made this recipe so many times, and just cannot get enough. Guests also love it! To make it even healthier, I just put a dash of olive oil in it and use low fat or fat free feta. It is delicious!!! If I don't want the brown color I use white balsamic vinegar. The tastiest is the Modena Balsamic Vinegar, of course!"

"Mine didn't turn out anything like the picture. The balsamic vinegar turned the onions a brownish color. I also thought the balsamic overpowered the dish, and you couldn't taste as much of the delicious feta as I would have liked. Is it possible for a vinegar to be too strong or overly potent?"

"With an over-abundance of cherry tomatoes, I can't tell you how many times I've made this recipe this summer. Very refreshing and easy. Never any left."
