Recipe Notes

This salad is wonderful addition to a full picnic menus or just a side dish to your favorite main dish. You can add more cheese or serve without cheese for those that can’t have lactose. Just one final note the longer you let the dressing sit the mellower the garlic flavor becomes. You can make the dressing the day before.
