warning: my stars don't really count, 'cause i didn't follow the recipe! when i ran across this, i was looking for something gyros-flavored, so i changed it up a bit to use what i had on hand, and i forgot the lemon juice and the dang red peppers!! it turned out really good, but i measured nothing so sure couldn't make a "real" recipe out of it, so thought i'd share here. to a bunch of cooked shredded chicken, i added about equal parts of yogurt, sour cream, and hummus. added dill, coriander, cumin, onion & garlic powder to taste. black olives, diced cucumber, halved cherry tomatoes. the store didn't have pita (!!) so we used Arnold's sandwich thins. bagels would have been good too. wish i'd added lettuce; it would also have been good as chicken-salad-on-salad. thanks for the inspiration!! i was going to make hot gyros and it was way to hot a day to cook!!

I absolutely love hummus but did not care for it in this recipe. I feel it would have been much better without it. I suggest before mixing in the hummus, try a bite with and without to see which way you like it best.

Kelly: Very scrumptious (as is). I made this for my boyfriend (who's a great cook) with the following modifications/suggestions: -2 small breasts of chicken (cooked and shredded) -3 cloves of garlic (small), quartered and sliced -1/2 cup European cucumber, quartered and sliced -1/4 Tsp. Accent -1/4 Tsp. salt -1/4 Tsp. ground black pepper Topped with cayenne pepper (a dash) This is a hearty, healthy chicken salad served on sprouted dill bread with yellow tomato slices and a handful of Spring Mix. I loved the Kalamata olive flavor. Good work Kelly! Enjoy!

MMM, MMM, MMM. Loved this! I added diced cucumber and tiny tomatoes instead of the bell pepper, otherwise all the same. Love the low fat, high-fat-tasting dressing. Served over spinach/arugula greens with some pita chips on the side.

Fabulous! I just made this today for lunch and it is great! Trying to get away from so much mayo (which I love, love, LOVE) because it is really not good for you. Greek yoghurt is the key here. American yogurt just won't do!

YUMMY!!!! Will probably never use mayo again! Thanks for the great recipe!

Delicious. Did mine without the onions and olives (just personal taste preference), and it was divine. Toast your bread first under the broiler for a moment to get it crispy and warm, then smother with the salad and top with Feta.

This was very, very good--really great flavor combo. I love that it calls for yogurt and hummus instead of mayo--much healthier than mayo, but still tastes great. The only thing I changed was to add more red pepper. Delicious--thanks for the recipe!
