This is a delicious, easy, and fresh-tasting update on a classic salad. It’s a great side dish that would compliment most meats and fish. If you want this as a main dish, add some crumbled feta. Recipe requires at least 10 minutes marinating time (and more is even better). It’s a great do-ahead or single person recipe as it makes great leftovers!
