Directions

In a large mixing bowl, mix together all salad ingredient. Set aside.

In a mason jar, add all dressing ingredients, and shake until well blended.

Pour the dressing over the salad, and gently toss with a wooden spatula until evenly coated.

The salad can be served right away, or keep it in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to allow the flavor to marry.

Note:

Because both of the olives and feta cheese are salty, you might not need any salt at all. Or taste first, then decide whether you need to add in more salt or not.
