    Might swap out another cheese for the feta, but this recipe, as is, tastes delicious. A taste of Greece! - 1/31/18

    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 work next to a Mediterranean restaurant and fell head over heals for this salad so much so it was all I ate for lunch for 2 weeks! I am not a big fan of lettuce either so glad I found a salad I like :) - 6/16/11

    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

    I, too, fell in love with this type of salad on my first trip to Greece and also delt with the frustration of not being able to find a lettuce-less version in the US. Thank you for sharing this recipe! If you're just scrolling for a new salad, make this! You will LOVE it! - 7/21/08
