    Easy, and pretty good. I thought it made more dressing than needed, though. I'll cut back on the dressing next time. I added a little chopped cucumber and some chopped parsley.

    This was a good recipe. I followed the advice of adding cucumbers to this to make it more substantial. Thanks!

    tasty way to use tomatoes that are so plentiful now. i used feta pre-mixed with basil and oregano and it was very good.

    This is a great and simple salad - this has become one of my go-to work lunches. Plus, you can use it as a great base - and add/ substitute diced cucumbers, olives, peppers, depending on what you have at home. I also have used freshly grated Parmesan instead of the feta. So quick and healthy to bring in to work!

    So, did any of you actually try the salad? I was wondering how it tastes.

    Actually, plastic is bad as well. There are many plastics that deteriorate over time and leak chemicals into the food contained in the containers. As well, microwaving in such containers is a very bad idea as this increases the speed of deterioration of the plastic and allows even more chemicals to reach your food.

    Speaking of aluminum, I was hoping that the lunchbox was stainless steel, and therefor corrosian resistant to salad dressing and the like. Personally, I prefer plastic to the leaching and corrosion products from aluminum!

    The nutition information for all the recipes in the Jan/Feb 2008 issue of Everyday Food is listed in the Index, starting on page 158.

    I thoroughly agree on including a calorie count and nutritional info. I received the recent edition of Everyday Foods geared toward light items, but no nutritional info!

    you can get all kinds of food tins like this one and even cooler ones made of melamine that are stackable from Pearl River Trading Company. I found them by Googling "Tiffin Boxes."

    The aluminum lunch bowl can be found at for 20.00 plus shipping.

  • wjhmadd84 4 Jan, 2008

    It would be very helpful to have calorie count and other nutritional information included with Martha's recipes!

    Hey guys! I did a little research... I found the following website that has a similar steel lunch box. Here is the direct link:

    It is beautiful - nothing worse than eating out of a plastic container. If anyone has info, please post it here!

  • byelihandworks 4 Jan, 2008

    I was thinking the same exact thing!!!! MS staff, who staged the food picture? How can we get that food tin.

  • mmequeen 4 Jan, 2008

    Does anyone know where to get the great food tin shown in the picture?
