This salad makes a very large batch, so it is a great option for medium to large gatherings. You may want to cut ingredient amounts in half for a smaller family meal or for a few days’ worth of lunches.
If you plan to enjoy the salad over the course of a few days, keep the dressing and salad in separate bowls in the fridge and add as needed, just before enjoying.
Other ingredients to consider adding: green bell peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, pepperoncini peppers or chopped fresh herbs.
A great way to turn this into a hearty lunch is to add cooked shredded chicken, crispy bacon crumbles, sliced salami or cooked ground beef or turkey.
