Found this recipe to be rather bland. I made this recipe according to the directions. Next time(there won't be a next time) I would use only half the rice and double the spinach, and probably add some other marinated veggies. This recipe, as it stands, makes a huge bowl of so-so salad. Unless you are feeding 40 people, you won't need this much 'salad'. If you have other yummy recipes on the table, people probably won't eat much of this one. Sorry!

DH and I really like this dish. I use more olives and oregano than called for in the recipe. I also drizzle some fresh lemon juice over it before serving. I am thinking next time I make it, I may throw in some diced red onion too.

Love it! I will make this again even if its just for me! I used 2 cups rice and it didn't seam like too much at all. Best greek salad I have ever made or eaten!

This is kind of pricy but it tastes incredibly yummy. Personally I didn't think that any salt needed to get added, the olives, feta and sun-dried tomatoes really had enough salt.

I really enjoyed this salad as do many of my friends and family (esp the vegetarians!) I did notice that I use more olive oil sometimes as the rice can make the salad quite dry. I have also added fresh basil and it's very good! I've made this salad many many times and always get a good response!

So yummy! I had leftover white rice and was making Mediterranean chicken, so this was a perfect side. It was pretty fast and easy. I didn't follow the directions to a T, just threw in a bit of this and that. The only thing I added was basil, which added a nice flavor. Also used sun-dried tomatoes in oil--much faster than soaking the dry ones. Will definitely make this again.

Great salad. I sometimes use orzo, sometimes rice. I chop the spinach up and use it fresh, no cooked.

This was good but it seemed like 2 cups of rice was too much. I would use less rice and a little less feta if I made it again.

We made this exactly to the recipe and my family of 4 all loved it. We all agreed we would happily eat it every week!

Love this salad, I do cut in half for family size portion. Lemon is important ingredient.
