This was a good salad! We added more cucumber, olives and double the lemon. We needed less than half of the dressing.
This was really good! I really enjoyed the dressing and all the components went so well together. Thanks for posting!
Fantastic! This is a great blend of flavors and the salad is very refreshing. I used onions instead of olives (personal preference), and I added just a tiny bit of olive oil to the yogurt I had, since it was the thicker Greek-style yogurt. That made it a little easier to work with as a dressing. I also added the oregano and garlic powder to the dressing, as well, in addition to just a pinch of sugar to take off the intense tang. Thanks for a keeper!
