A few high-quality ingredients come together in this delicious dish. Extra Virgin Olive Oil replaces mayonnaise, for a healthier salad that’s perfect for serving outdoors on hot days. And since the flavor improves while the salad sits in the fridge, you can make this ahead and serve it the next day.
