When this recipe came out in the June issue I made it right away and we just love it! The dressing is simple to make and full of flavor. The sardines add a wonderful health benefit. I've made this salad consistently since we found the recipe and have made some adjustments. When making it for a large potluck (usually for work) I bulk up the salad with lettuce, double the dressing recipe, and omit the sardines. It has been a huge hit with my co workers. At home I make it both with and without the sardines depending on our mood. It has become one of our go to recipes in our home!
Greek Salad with Sardines
From EatingWell: May/June 2010
The fresh, tangy elements of a Greek salad—tomato, cucumber, feta, olives and lemony vinaigrette—pair well with rich-tasting sardines. Look for sardines with skin and bones (which are edible) as they have more than four times the amount of calcium as skinless, boneless sardines. If you’re lucky enough to have fresh sardines available in your supermarket, try them in place of the canned sardines. Lightly dredge them in salt-and-pepper-seasoned flour and sauté them in a little olive oil.

I completely enjoyed this salad. I wanted to begin eating sardines for their health benefits, but I have always been a bit "scared" of sardines. This is a great introduction to sardines. I enjoyed this and will certainly make it again!
My family loved it. It makes a great light dinner during the summer months. It also makes a nice side salad without the sardines. The refreshing lemony vinaigrette dressing was so easy to make and really went nicely with the feta, red onion and olives.
Can't wait to try this. I have been searching for healthy recipes...what I found before this was overwhelming information, or confusing, or had ingredients that were unavailable or out of my budget range. I am so excited about all the options for my new found desire to eat healthier than I have in 50yrs. Now I am overwhelmed by the choices I have. Thanks!
Like it. Easy to make and quick: no thawing, no make ahead and wait hrs before use, no real expensive or hard to find ingredients. And all r healthy and satisfying.
