One thing to keep in mind is that fresh. dill can be very strong when fresh. If you don’t want it to overpower the salad, feel free to add less. I love fresh herbs. This would also work great with fresh oregano. I use cherry tomatoes because I love their flavor, but you can add regular tomatoes or even grape tomatoes if cherry tomatoes are costly. If you want this to have more of a Greek flavor, you might want to add olives.
