Binnur,
Wonderful salad!! My dad had surgery in March and has had a poor appetite since. I was pleased when I fixed him some of this salad and he wanted a second helping. Thanks for your great recipe!

Does this work with peyniri, or is it best to use firm fetta?

You can use any kind of peynir ant the best one is feta cheese, Lauren:)
