Notes

Tips for Making Mediterranean Salad
  • Preparing in Advance-Leave the dressing off, and dress the salad before serving.
  • Serving a Large Crowd-If you have a larger crowd, or you're bringing this salad as a dish to pass at a picnic or party, you can double the amounts to serve up to 12 people.
  • Allow the salad to marinate for an hour before serving for the best flavor. Keep in an airtight container for up to 1 day.
  • This salad is best when consumed the day it is prepared. Chopped cucumber can get soggy if left overnight, especially if it is dressed.
