I found the onion a little strong (the one i used was quite big) but other than that it was lovely and refreshing and so easy to throw together, definately a winner for an event such as a summer bbq. Next time i'm going to try adding fresh lime juice as recommended in some of the other comments.

Made this to go with a chilli for a party. It went down well - plain and simple and tasted fresh with the chilli.

grate feta over the top of this ace salad and you have a traditional Bulgarian 'Shopska' salad which is the most popular salad over here.

did this with lime and green olives and side of deep fried finely sliced green platin and a guacamole to serve with sesame rice and deep fried mero(not sure translation but big thick white battered fish) and or chicken for mothers day in a restie in bogota. thanks everyone. 2morrow the day but tested on family, friends and huge hit. ps why no south american food onsite will remedy this.

A bit of marinated feta (marinated in fried garlic and onions and garam masla) works nicely with this!

Also added lime juice - well you can't have coriander without lime, can you. Served with chicken balti - very tasty!

Fab salad, we love it served with whole fish and lightly buttered new potatoes. I've crumbled feta into ours and it's become a firm favourite through the summer!
