  • Thanks for posting! Was looking for a great salad without greens and this hits the spot, especially with fresh in-season ingredients. I added red wine vinegar to the olive oil as well as some basil & oregano. This has become a lunch staple for me! - 6/1/14

  • I ate something like this on almost a daily basis while I was in the Crimea - looking forward to duplicating it now that I'm back home. I sometimes use the imported feta that comes packed in olive oil and herbs, and just drizzle some of that on top of the vegetables. - 8/11/09

    This recipe was good but a little dry. Some lemon juice would be a nice addition. Also, layer the tomatoes on top and let sit at room temp, covered, so that the juices can drip onto the other vegs. Needed salt too. - 9/22/08
