      As per usual, dear friend ~ you have the best salads...ever. I love this for so many ways. The only change I (accidentally) made was forgetting to put the grape leaves (rolled) into the photo. Double darn. Oh well, this is the exact type of salad that is typical for our "Greek Town" that has absolute authentic Greek salad. As in typical Greek salad, it is more the mixture of tomato, cucumber, peppers, celery, Greek-olives, pepperoncini, and Greek yogurt. This is exactly what a "Greek salad" should be and is. Just amazing, Lainey! Loved it, and will make again often. I was able to throw this together rather quickly....made the dressing in the morning. Cut and prepped in the afternoon, tossed dressing with veggies to marinate for an hour before devouring. Made for Photo Forum event! April 2010

      I really enjoyed this salad! I admit I did not make the pita toasts, and I didn't have the stuffed grape leaves, but the salad was great! I had it for dinner with brown rice and steamed zuchini and broccoli. Thanks Lainey!

      This was without doubt the most delicious and elegant Greek style salad that I have made on ZWT4! I have made 2 already - we eat salad every day, so it has been a delight to choose a different salad to make for the tour on a daily basis! I used store-bought stuffed vine (grape) leaves - Dolmas - from the Deli and also artisanal pitta breads as well. We had this as a main meal for lunch in the garden at my parent's house in England - they LOVED it as much as I did! As my mum is a vegetarian, she has asked me to print this recipe for her to keep for the future - that is a real accolade Lainey!! Absolutley delicious - a CLEVER combination of flavours AND textures - it is hard work with all the prep - but WELL worth it - do not let that put you off making this! Made for ZWT4 - merci! FT:-)
