Fantastic & not at all hard to make!  I like it with blueberries instead of blackberries better, but either way I used more mint---a whole bunch per batch.  And I didn't like the olive oil (not nearly enough to make the feta creamy, either) so used a good 1/2 cup cream, and the feta was still stiff.  Pickled onions are a snap (no baking---sit out on counter) and this salad is also BEAUTIFUL---got loads of compliments!

why does it say to bake the quick pickled onions at 425 for 20 min. if you actually did that they would be cinders and I assume that is a typo!!!
