Recipe Notes
  • Feel free to prepare this salad beforehand. It actually tastes much better couple of hours or a day later, when all ingredients combine and fully release their flavor.
  • My advice – make at least double dose at once, and have it handy in your refrigerator for numerous meal combinations over the next 4 days.
  • Experiencing savory cravings between the meals? Well, few bites of this goodie will patch you up in no time. This is ideal alternative to greasy crisps or crackers.
