I made this for a Greek-themed dinner party. Everyone thought it was a very delicious salad. I included all the ingredients and was taken with how the flavor of the mint gave me an "Oh wow" kind of sensation. I am not familiar with Greek cuisine so this was very enlightening for me. Something I would make again for me and my husband.
This was absolutely delicious! I served a big bowl of this, without the mint, and me and my hubbie happily gobbled this all up (followed by Dunkin' Donuts-sorta nets of!) I'll be making this a lot, thank u!
This was very good. I left out the mint leaves because I'm not a big fan so probably I altered the taste quite a bit from what it should be and I also did'nt use the perreroncini peppers as I did'nt have any but I thoroughly enjoyed the salad even with those two ingredients missing.
