Notes

Notes:

  • General: The recipe says to serve immediately, but I happen to think it's better if it's made ahead and allowed to marinate in the dressing for a ½ an hour or so.
  • Salsa/Salad: The recipe is listed as salsa, but this makes a great side salad.
  • First four ingredients: Mix in small measuring cup and pour over vegetables and feta.
  • Add-in: Chopped onions! Red/purple or green. About 2-3 T.
