  • Reviews

  • “This is a wonderful summer salad! We loved the cucumber/feta dressing….low in fat and a great delicate flavour. For next time I would add more green onions and parsley or other herbs, maybe more olives, but we also enjoyed it as written. This recipe makes a large bowl of salad, more like 12 servings than 6. Thank you, Gay.”
