Notes

This is a great make ahead salad! Just dress and toss right before serving.
Try adding some romaine lettuce to make this a more leafy salad.
To make this vegan you can use a vegan cheese and dijon mustard or substitute the feta for avocado for a nice creamy component.
This salad is SO much easier to prepare if you buy PITTED Kalamata olives.
