This recipe will made you feel fancy and make any family or guests think you are a master chef when really it is a very easy throw-together salad. The flavors are bold, juicy, and herby – can be passed as either Mediterranean or Italian. It can be eaten immediately, and tastes even better if marinated for a few hours or eaten as leftovers the next day. This heirloom salad pairs wonderfully with grilled chicken or my quick lamb shoulder chops and cauliflower tabbouleh!
