Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will last about 3-4 days in the fridge. For best results, only toss the salad with the dressing immediately before serving.
Make Ahead Tips: You can make the dressing up to 3 weeks in advance and double or triple the recipe to have it on hand for other salads or even as a marinade.
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However the salad itself is very adaptable so feel free to add or change any of the ingredients.
