This is a very delicious recipe. At the last minute, I realized that I was out of red wine vinegar so I did a combination of balsamic vinegar and some blush wine. It was really delicious. Just like other reviewers, I added feta cheese and a tiny bit of Greek dressing to the salad. I also marinaded the meat for more than an hour. Not much talking over dinner, mostly just chewing and swallowing! Just got a great idea from another reviewer for the left-overs too!
