I took this to work, as one co-worker is vegetarian. Everyone raved about the salad. Three minor adjustments: I added a whole (6oz) carton of herb feta cheese, used a small can of olives and added 1/2 chopped green pepper.

OK but doesn't have the complexity of flavor that I was hoping for.

This was a big hit. I now know what I'll be bringing to BBQs this summer. I took the advice of others and halved the olives and increased the feta to 3 oz or so. I also added 1tsp of dried oregano.

Good salad. I recommend adding more feta cheese.

What this recipe might lack in imagination and creativity is more than made up for in taste and presentation. I feel for any recipe submitter who has no choice but to list strict amounts of ingredients when that may or may not be their intent. Therefore, I'm sure the submitter would agree to add any ingredients, including the amount of dressing, to taste rather than specific measurements - which is what I did. I used my own lemon vinaigrette for the dressing which for my tastes is infinitely preferable to the "in" balsamic vinaigrettes. Other than that I used the ingredients as called for in the recipe with no additions or omissions save for some chopped parsley, although the leftover rotisserie chicken I have in the fridge looks like a promising addition for lunch today. Classic, light and refreshing, can't-go-wrong, good-for-you salad at a fraction of the cost you'd pay for it in your deli.

Super with even some of the ingredients! I only added the cucumbers and substituted green onions for the red onion. Didn't have any feta...but I'm sure it would be great! I was surprised and glad that the cucumbers didn't go soggy overnight in the dressing. Thanks for this recipe.

Really easy, kept well, tasty too-- I think anything with feta cheese and garbanzos is great, and the italian dressing was a great idea! Thanks =0)

yummy!! i didn't have garbonzo beans so used black beans, and extra feta of course. i think any bean would be good in this. it was delicious.
