Really easy to make. I omitted the olives as we don't like them and substituted sun dried tomatoes. Interested to see people's comments about lemon juice - May try that next time.

Made this to go with the must make moussaka on the website, a match made in heaven. Will definitely be making again.

Reminds me of being in Corfu in the summer. A squeeze of lemon along extra olive oil really aided this dish for me and I also added an avocado that was in the fridge that just sat on top. A perfect Sunday evening supper.

We have been making this salad often this summer. We have been adding a squeeze of lemon and fresh mint. It tastes delicious.
