    Great recipe, left the kalamata olives out, and threw the zucchini in the pan with the couscous after I turned the burner off.

    This salad was delicious and pretty easy to make. I wasnt sure I was going to like it with the raw onions (Im not particularly a fan) but everything worked nicely together. I made some adjustments to the quantity of ingredients to fit my personal taste (added more feta for taste and oil for consistency) but overall a great disb. Definitelt saving to make again one day.

    This is one of my favorites.. I make it often and have it in my saved folder for reference when I do make it... Love the taste of the dressing and have made it for other recipes too.

    This was bomb. Super easy to make, and it made me feel like a dang health nut. Using 100g of feta is legit wild though. It was like eating a block of cheese, dude. I'd go for 50g of feta unless you wanna become the mayor of frikkin cheese town or whatever.

    It is a delicious lunch choice Easy to make and serve Some of the vegetables can be switched to taste I’m not a fan of kalamata olives, so I skipped it altogether Added tomatoes instead

    Very tasty. I reduced the mint and added a little more lemon juice. It is good to eat fresh food, not fried!

    Super easy salad to make as a meal or side.

    Great! Has a strong Mediterranean flavor that may not be for all. What I would consider an authentic European dish. Would make again in a heartbeat.

    Yummy! I added more olives and another 1/2 cup of couscous. This will now be a staple recipe for me.

    I replaced the zucchini with cucumber as one of the below comments suggested. It tasted good, I will make it again.

    Yum! Made quite a few modifications to fit my taste though. Took out the zucchini & olives and put cucumber instead. Also made double the couscous. came out great!

    Maybe leave out onion, gave it funky taste
