    Strong garlic flavor! Must serve immediately because by the next day it's rather dry. Wouldn't make it again.  -  04 Oct 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I would recommend using less than a tablespoon of garlic to anyone trying this recipe for the first time. Also, I'm not a fan of olives so I omitted them and added a bit more roasted red pepper and feta, which took away a bit of the color-contrast you want in a salad but tasted just fine. I hope it doesn't dry out overnight as I made it with the intention of having it for lunch tomorrow, but I don't see why the addition of a little olive oil couldn't remedy that problem.  -  17 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
