Really liked this recipe! I scaled the recipe for "16" servings, added sliced black olives instead of whole, used 1/2 red wine and 1/2 balsamic vinegar, rotini noodles instead of macaroni, red & green peppers, fresh garlic instead of garlic powder (don't use) and added a seedless cucumber (because we love!!) everything else the same. Next time I make this, I will use the noodles called for in the recipe as "Rotini" takes away from the other flavors (too much pasta). I will use LESS VINEGAR, although we LOVE vinegar the amount listed was just TOO MUCH!! Again, it took away from all the other flavors, especially Feta cheese which has a strong flavor as is and we could barely taste the cheese! Everything else I would do the same except maybe add a little seasoned salt to the mix to balance out the flavors. This is definitely a keeper and I'm making it again next week for a fourth of July party with the changes above. My family from ages 8 to 54 really liked this recipe although my husband thought a little "TOO MUCH" vinegar as well. All my boys had seconds! Served with Barbeque pulled pork sandwiches and corn on the cobb! YUM YUM! As to the Four (4) star rating, too much vinegar as written is all. Everything else was perfect. Thank you so much for a GREAT RECIPE!
