    Tasty! Used all ingredients as directed. I thought the dressing was too sweet so I added more lemon juice, garlic powder, and pepper, but while it was still sweet, the flavor of the kalamatas and other veggies really mellowed the sweetness. Sundried tomatoes aren’t really noticed so either double or take out.

    Perfect summer side dish - light, refreshing, and a little tangy. I didn’t have the olives on hand, but still delicious.

    I am pretty sure the serving size is not correct. Yummy salad, lots if veggies and whole grains. Paired it up with honey pepper grilled salmon fillets. Good stuff.

    It was delicious! I didn't have Fetta cheese so I had to leave this ingredient out but the flavor was really fresh and tasty. I'm a big fan of Quinoa as it goes with aplenty ingredients.

    The salad turned out good. I used cherry tomatoes instead of sundried.
