Notes
Recipe adapted from With Salt and Wit

If you like well-dressed salads (vs a light dressing), perhaps make 2x or 1.5x as much dressing. This suited me well, but just a note that it isn't a ton of dressing. Mix well, it will coat everything!

This salad is okay the next day. Not amazing, but definitely acceptable.
