    I made this salad to take to a pot luck luncheon tomorrow. Easy to make and make-ahead.

    Really delicious. When I first tasted it, I found it a little dry and the texture a little boring. I added an extra tablespoon of olive oil and 1/4 cup of sliced almonds and was really happy with the changes. Next time I will still make these additions and will then double the whole recipe because this quantity was only enough to feed two people as an entree, and I want leftovers!

    Yum, great flavors and easy to make. I added 6 thinly sliced almonds to the recipe and will definitely do it again the next time I attempt this...delicious!

    Delicious! I followed the recipe almost to the letter; only substitution was using goat cheese as I had that on hand. Made it on a Sunday and it was good for lunch all week!

    Have made this several times with couscous and quinoa. Either way...it's delicious! I added cucumber and it added a little bit of crunch. YUM!

    This is so good! Loved it with a pitas and some thinly sliced sirloin. I also served some fresh spinach with cucumbers. My only change to the recipe was to add some basil and mint instead of parsley and to use all stock and no water. The leftovers will be great for lunch, too.

    This is great as a light lunch or a side dish with almost anything. I actually crave it! Don't try to substitute balsamic vinegar for the red wine variety - it makes it too sweet!
