After making the first time, I added diced tomatoes and used a more flavorful, yet still low fat dressing which was much improved. Also, be sure to chop the spinach fairly finely. On the first go, the spinach was way to big, making it awkward to eat. Otherwise, nice combo of ingredients.

It was bland and disappointing. I don't think I will make this again.

Perfect for a fast, satisfying weeknight meal. I used frozen salmon.

Made this last night, and it was good! I added about 1 cup of halved grape tomatoes and doubled the entire recipe to make sure everyone was satisfied (a 1-cup serving seemed pretty small to me, especially for dinner). I used garlic and herb feta for a bit of added flavor, and included 12 kalamata olives rather than 8 (I love kalamata olives!). I found that I had to sprinkle a bit more lemon juice over my serving because otherwise I thought it was a bit dry, but I was the only one of three who did so. I will definitely make this again! It's a flavorful and simple dish.

I loved this. I made it to bring to work for lunch. I subbed imitation crab meet for the salmon and goat cheese for feta. It's light and refreshing. I'll definitely make this again.

My picky husband had 3 helpings! I added some eggplant and roasted the peppers. yummy, so easy and will definitely make again.

I love this recipe and have made it again and again. I add chik peas. i think the flavor of the salmon and the feta doesnt require any dressing at all.

What a great salad! I'm sure it's still fantastic as written, however I did make a few changes. I was surprised to learn I did not have any salmon so I used Greek seasoning on a chicken breast and sautéed it. Then, to kick up the dressing flavor a bit I added about a tablespoon each of red wine vinegar, EVOO, and grated in lemon rind. Because I had the ingredients on hand, I also threw in some chopped fresh parsley and marinated artichoke hearts. So good! I can't wait to make it again with salmon.

I brought this to a picnic and it was major hit. My only change was to use lemon orzo. I made it the day before but was worried about it drying out so I stored the salmon separately, the cooked orzo and lemon juice together, the bell pepper, onions and spinach together, and the feta and olives together, then tossed it together with more lemon juice just before serving.

Delicious. I doubled the recipe, so my husband and I can have this for lunch tomorrow. I squeezed some extra lemon on my portion and just loved it. Thank you.

very good ! suitable for company, lunch or dinner. followed suggestions and added chopped tomato, cucumber, and cici beans. artichokes might fit well also. will make again. might try other fish or chicken.
