    We enjoyed this, but I think we would've liked it even more if it had been chilled for awhile to give the mint time to blend with everything else. I would make it again because it's a great healthy side salad.  -  11 Jun 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    After tasting this salad, I was immediately taken back to a wonderful little restaurant in Athens Greece! I am thrilled to know that this recipe is here for us to enjoy any time we want to!!!! With the summer upon us right now, I can see myself making this as a side with all kinds of dishes! Thanks for the albeit, in my mind, vacation back to Greece!  -  12 Jun 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
