  1. We did a variation of this as well…no laurel leaves or feta but we made do. It was delicious and brought some comfort to a dreary, rainy day here! Thanks Eleni!

    • Our TJ’s was sampling this the other day. They used a cebmulrd feta w/ Mediterranean herbs and added diced English cucumber and diced red bell pepper. It was terrific! In fact, I’m getting my ingredients out right now to make some. Any idea though how long it will last in the fridge once made? Thanks, Kate
