Easy to make and tastes great. Perfect as a side or light meal in summer.

Luckily, I have Kalamata olives in the fridge. Any sort of black olives would be fine though. Great salad, changed nothing and everyone was commenting on the salad. It is now the base for any salad I make. Many thanks.

Delicious and easy to prepare. Bought fresh kalamata olives but unfortunately weren't pitted. Still, a delicious salad. Love the juices.

So lovely I've made this twice recently. I served it with bbc good food's lamb koftas and a homemade yoghurt and mint dip. Will be a regular feature on my meal planner!

Love this recipe, always come back to it. Haven't tried the lemon juice, will add it next time. Another tip for the onion, if you don't like it too strong, is to soak in cold water for a short while. Tastes better for letting it stand for a while before serving, to let the flavours combine.

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.
