Chef Notes:
  • Make-Ahead: This is salad is meant to be eaten right away, however, if you keep the ingredients separated after they are prepared you can make this 1 day ahead of time.
  • How to Store: Keep covered and un-dressed for up to 3 days. If you can keep all of the ingredients separated and covered it will hold for up to 6 days in the refrigerator.
  • If you have a salad spinner, that would be best when preparing the greens.
  • Other dressings that will work in the salad are balsamic vinaigrette and ranch.
