    As much as I love the idea of eating Mediterranean, I can’t stand strong cheeses like Feta, Blu Cheese, goat cheese, etc. Can anyone suggest a substitution? Otherwise, I love all the other foods & ingredients.

      Hi Barbara! A fantastic option for a milder cheese would be fresh mozzarella.

        thanks so much! I just didn’t know if a mild cheese like mozzarella would be as good ( probably not). Can’t wait to try this!
