Notes

  • You can add other vegetables such as tomatoes, green onions or red bell pepper. 
  • Store the leftovers in an airtight container and refrigerate. This salad keeps for up to 3 days. However, since this salad is made with fresh herbs, it's best to not let it sit in the refrigerator for a long time. 
  • This salad is best served cold. Once you're done making it, cover the bowl and refrigerate for one hour so the flavors combine well. 
  • I chop the onions pretty small for this salad but you can also slice them or use a vegetable slicer to get very thin slices.
