Recipe Notes:

  • After mixing your salad, it is best to refrigerate it for about an hour before serving. This will give the flavors a chance to marinate into everything well. If desired, you can make it the night/day before you are going to serve it.
  • Keep any leftover salad in a covered container in the refrigerator. Eat within 2-3 days of making.
