Great, quick recipe, but I changed it a bit. I omitted the sun dried tomatoes, and just used olive oil, salt and freshly ground pepper for the dressing. I also chopped all ingredients for a nice texture and added fresh oregeno.

This salad was okay. I thought it might be better if I made it a day before, but it turned out to be soggy.

This is the best greek salad recipe I've come across. Using Kalamata olives instead of black olives is a must though. Both my husband and I thought the sun-dried tomatoes really made this salad great. Next time I will toss the salad with a dash of oil and then sprinkle the feta cheese on top. The oil from the sun-dried tomatoes turned my feta cheese pink and took away from the appearance. I may also try this salad with an infused oil instead.

I didn't seed my cucumbers, and I added a tablespoon of good quality balsamic vinegar just to pick it up a little. This is exactly what a Mediterranean Greed Salad should taste like.

This is absolutely the best Greek salad I've had outside of Greece! Refreshing and beautiful! Definitely use kalamata olives, though. I followed the advice of other reviewers and used just 1 Tbls. of the oil and added 1 Tbls. red wine vinegar.

This was a great base for a salad recipe, however, I found it to be a bit bland. So I added 1-2 tsp mediterranean rice seasoning, a little jamaican allspice, some cracked pepper and salt. Also a bunch of fresh torn spinach and some rave reviews from all!!! Thanks Heather!

This is my Greek boyfriend's favorite Greek salad ever. The sundried tomatoes really make the salad. I add a little extra olive oil and some red wine vinegar (and lots of salt and pepper). This recipe can easily be made ahead, but I add the feta just before serving. Fabulous summer salad!!

Excellent recipe! I used kalamata olives instead and it was still delicious. I peeled the cucumbers, which I think takes away from the color of the salad, but I don't like the texture of the peel. I only used 1 tbs. of the sun-dried tomato oil and added 1 tbs. of red wine vinegar instead (a little more tang). Lastly, I added a bit of cumin to give it a little extra flavor. Will definitely repeat!
