This was wonderful! I only had tomatoes, onions, and cucumbers. Loaded it with feta. Tasted good warm also, as I couldn’t wait for it to chill:)

I made this yesterday for a tailgate party for my son’s baseball game. I followed the recipe, but used a little less oil, about 1/2 cup . . . it was very good and I know I’ll be making this again. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.

I made this last weekend for a “Greek” play potluck for my daughters class. At first I thought it was going to be way too much oil, but when it sits overnight the seasonings blend well! I added sundried tomatoes, it was great!

I loved this! I used 1/2 the box of orzo and the full amount of the other ingredients. Delicious!

I made this dish for company this weekend, and all of the adults loved it. (The kids, of course wouldn’t touch it – but that’s about what I expected.)

Note, however, that as written, this recipe makes enough for a small army. Next time, I’ll half the recipe.

This is one of my favorite summer dishes! It’s great for a large gathering, and also for a quick, cool lunch on a hot day.
