I made this last night--so easy and delicious! My SigOther who doesn't like fruit in salads....loved this! The feta cheese's salty tang turned this combo into a savory summery fresh tasting side dish instead of a "dessert". Along with fresh mint I also added some fresh basil. We will definitely make this dish again. Read More
