This is a delicious recipe that has quickly become a favorite of my family. The only thing I change is I use half the oil, and for more flavor add two cloves of garlic, pressed. I have taken this salad to luncheons and everyone wants a copy of the recipe. Thanks for sharing!
Well, first hint, don't use dried dill.. tastes like sticks in the salad. Interesting, but missing something, maybe more olives, maybe some italian dressing instead of lemon/vinegar combo.. I don't know, I don't think I'll make it again.
This is a light refreshing salad. Its a great dish, especially if you enjoy tomatoes and feta. I recommend trying to eat it quickly as if its in the fridge for more than a couple days it starts to go bad. I used Kalamata olives and added a splash of balsamic vinegar.
Brought this to a friend's BBQ and it received rave reviews! I subbed black olives for the green and loved the taste.
Delicious! I added three tomatoes instead of one and less olive-oil (extra light). Fresh herbs really make it good! Be careful with adding salt: olives and feta are already salty.
Excellent as a side dish . Will use dried dill and parsley next time. The fresh herbs tasted too grassy. I added some chopped marinated artichoke hearts and its liquid, chopped cukes and a couple of dashes of balsamic vinegar. Makes a good amount.
This was a very tasty salad. I love orzo and feta so I thought it would be. I didn't use as much olive oil as the recipe called for and it was still yummy! Thanks, Sabrina, for another great pasta salad recipe from this site.
A very unique salad to serve at a garden luncheon or picnic. Go easy on the feta cheese as it is quite salty if you use too much. mmm...
