"This recipe is better the second day, if there is any left over. My family fights for the leftovers! You can add more or less olives, celery seed, and mayonnaise to taste. Even better if made the night before and allowed to sit for several hours." — Marsha Glick

Our 8 year old is crazy about Ancient Greece so we served this salad as part of a Greek dinner night. He loved it and he is a very picky eater. Enough taste that it isn't bland, but not overpowering. We just used Ditali lisci pasta instead for kiddie interest. Quite nice and easy to make.
I love olives but this recipe seemed too dry and I would definately cut back on the celery seed.
