    Delicious, made with dill and extra garlic. Added feta to individual servings for people who were dairy free. Next time will try a variation with cilantro and grilled corn.

    This salad is fantastic. I made it for dinner tonight. I added some leftover cooked chicken and some avocado. I would definitely make this for dinner or for a party. My only complaint is that I don't see any nutritional facts anywhere. Any chance of getting those?

    Has the print function been removed from the iPad version? Is there a fix?

    I have found the "printer" icon in the upper right corner AFTER I scrolled down the page. So now I will simply agree with many of the reviewers and ask "Why did you remove the photos from the page"? May sound silly but seeing the photo helps to refresh my memory when scrolling through all my FOOD recipes. Please add the photo back to the printed version. I am a graphic designer and I often design websites. Initially, using this site was not too user-friendly. Just saying.......

    I too cannot print from the new site! There is no "Print" button or word. I use Mac and never had a problem before. To the techies at MS, please tell us how to print your recipes!!!!!

    I made this last night and it was delicious! The feta cheese gave the dish a great taste and there was plenty for a family to enjoy (even with leftovers). The only thing I might try differently next time is replacing this mint. I might try dill. My husband said the mint gave the meal a good flavor but he thought cilantro might make it taste even better!

    I know when I scroll down on the page, there's a print icon that pops up on a toolbar across the top of the page. If you click it, it brings up another page that is just the recipe that will print on only one sheet. I can't wait to make this! We're having it tonight! Thanks, Sarah!

    I'm also sick of wasting needless paper on these recipes, or trying to guess exactly how many pages to request in order to get the recipe in.

    Difficult to print without a print prompt--unable to bring desk computer to stove.
