My husband enjoys complaining about everything I cook but he started raving about this recipe and saying it was excellent. I was waiting for the other shoe to drop when I realized he was very serious for once. I made it on two other occasions for guests and it was well received both times. One of the guests even requested the recipe so that she could serve it to her family and friends. Keep up the good work!

I made this dish for 25 people and was a huge favorite. Very easy to make, just as delicious the next day. Can not stop telling people about it.

Sounds like a good recipe but a little bit heavy on the sodium for me.

After reading the caloriem fat & fiber amounts, I'm not sure this would be a good choice. Then again it is a main meal and sounds like a good use of the 6/7 points.
I love Greek Salads.

Great recipe, easy to prepare ahead and have ready for dinner. My daughter is hard to please and Greek Salad is one of her favs, so this will be a fav at my house.
