We have this reasonably new line in the supermarket/grocery that is roll ups from the world, I will have a look at the Greek one when I go next.

Can't imagine that Feta would be a bad thing! I have this philosophy about recipes Kabana - if I want to add something I do - if I want to take something out I do. Recipes are a guide, not a rule.

Exactly right, KE! Modification and experimentation make cooking fun.

My husband seems to be doing that alot lately and sometimes we think our creation is better than the original, or more to our taste at least.

That's how I feel too - my version is better because I had or take out the flavors I like/don't like. And one more thing - you better share those wonderful recipes or the Discuss Cooking Police will come ransack your house!

I'd use feta, pita bread, Kalamata olives. Dressing? Why not yoghourt or feta/kalamata dressing. Then it would have a Greek taste IMHO.
