Notes

  1. You can make up your own vinaigrette dressing as described here, or you can just use 1 cup of a store-bought Greek vinaigrette dressing. 
  2. This salad is ideal to make ahead. It tastes best after a couple of hours (or longer) chilling in the fridge, so it's ideal to make it the day before. 
  3. Leftovers keep very well (covered) in the fridge for around 5 days.
