    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Make this only if you are a lover of Greek food, this is a full flavored rice with intense flavor and not for those with a plain palette! --- since not everyone has a taste for olives I have left them as optional, I most always add them in -- after making this a few times you will most likely want to adjust some of the ingredients to suit your taste, or you may not, the amounts listed are close to what I use when I make this rice --- this is very good!

      This was delicious & intensely flavored as stated. First time I made exactly as stated, but the second time around I used small garlic cloves, 1/4 teas. black pepper, and a little less lemon juice. This is the perfect amount of heat & flavor for my taste.
      I love to toss in some sauteed spinach at the end.
      Thanks Kittencal:)

      This may be my favorite rice ever! I didn't even add in the feta and olives because it tasted so good without them (and I was trying to cut out a tad bit of fat. I could live off of your recipes every meal of the day and be happy.

      Tried this tonight. Only had basmati rice, and cut back on the lemon a bit, but it turned out GREAT! My 4 year old LOVED it. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Will likely double it next time! Thanks!
