I added Kalamata olives and chopped fresh tomatoes and left out the peas in mine, but otherwise made per the directions. The taste was delicious and this is one pilaf I plan to make often, as we really enjoyed it with our baked lamb chops seasoned with greek seasoning. Thanks MsBindy! Ann

Lovely with the salty flavour of feta. I used baby spinach, white Basmati rice cooked with butter, frozen baby peas, and no dill. We had this with Mum's Yemista (Greek Stuffed Vegetables With Rice) for a good meal. I would make this again without dill per preference here.

Good stuff! I left out the peas and feta (since I didn't have any), added chicken and pine nuts and extra lemon. It tastes like the filling of a spinich pie, and is great topped with plain yogurt. It's easy and versatile which is right up my alley!

This is one of the best rice dishes I've had in a very long time. I didn't have peas or dill, so I added extra spinach and used fresh mint. It was delicious!

Very good. The feta really makes it "pop" and is a must! Thanks for a new recipe!

I made this for our "Kab-arbecue" (Kabob+BBQ) yesterday, and people loved it. I doubled the recipe and added an extra 1/2 cup of feta. Got rave reviews, and several requests for a copy of the recipe. Thanks for sharing it!

This was good. I didn't have any feta, so I substituted parmesan and I think that the feta would have added just the extra creamy-salty yumminess that I was looking forward to. Having said all that, it was certainly good enough to make again, and I will I'm sure! Served it with Greek meatballs.

Delicious! I didn't use a cup of feta but it was just enough to get the creamy salty taste. I made this to go with green bean and cherry tomato salad and the pork gyros with yogurt tomato sauce both Epicurious recipes. Outstanding meal. Will make again. Very easy to make.
