"This is a Greek style salad that is delicious! It is hearty enough to serve as the main course." — Charlotte

green bell pepper, thinly sliced
red bell pepper, julienned
red onion, julienned
sliced black olives
crumbled feta cheese
boneless chicken breast half, cooked and sliced into thin strips
grated lemon zest, minced
Just average. It would be better to use mini tortellini (my guests were cutting their tortellini's in half before eating them). I added 1 minced garlic clove and 1 tsp. oregano due to previous comments that the recipe was bland, and I did increase the amount of the dressing. O.k., but I won't make it again.
This was easy and relatively quick, but bland. I was longing for other spices- maybe some ginger, garlic, cilantro, etc.
Added note...I made this again and I left out the oil, used a bit more honey, added rice wine vinegar and hot pepper flakes; it was much improved. The lemon and honey complemented each other and weren't overwhelmed by the oil. Better for you too!
I made this recipe for a Super Bowl party. Everyone loved it and I plan on making it again. I used a flavored feta cheese from the supermarket which gave the salad a little extra flavor. I am adding this recipe to my collection. Thanks!
This was a very tasty pasta salad---great for a warm summer day! I doubled the chicken for my husband's sake and marinated it first in lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, and fresh chopped oregano before baking it. Because I don't love olives, I used a small can (2.25 oz), which seemed to be plenty. Also, I substituted a yellow bell pepper for a green one; they seem less bitter to me. Don't forget to add salt and pepper to the marinade!
Great recipe! Have been making it for a couple of years. I too, have used "spiced" feta and doubled the dressing. Also added more walnuts (love the walnuts!). Also added chick peas for a change. I have made this for company, baby showers and new Moms - it's always a request. Yummy!
Not bad but nothing special, either. Perhaps my having left walnuts out caused the recipe to be blander than it should have been.
My mother in law and I personally really liked this salad but my picky husband and father in law didn't even try it. The cold pasta was wonderful-dont over cook it! I needed to chop the veggies a bit smaller, but they were fine. I will make this again for parties and family gatherings, but I cant make it at home for my husband wont touch it. I added more lemon juice and the honey was a great addition. Didn't have walnuts- thats okay though- dont really like nuts. Overall a nice cool summer recipe.
Excellent dressing on an excellent salad. Nice to have something so different and delicious. Well done.
