Notes

NOTE: If you are going to serve the whole salad at once (and don’t plan on any leftovers) you can add the salad ingredients and mix the salad. But if you don’t have 10 people planning to eat this salad it’s probably better to serve the dressing over individual servings because it won’t last otherwise.
