    It has potential. As is – it was too much salt between the 1TBS added at cooking, then olives, feta, dressing, and additional salt after all that – I added some red wine vinegar after the fact which helped but next time I would not add any salt for cooking and maybe just a little after it’s cooked. Also – I would add 2 C of tomatoes to freshen it up a bit.
