Notes

Veggies: You can obviously use whatever veggies you have on hand. Would also be great with cucumber, zucchini, green onions, etc.
Dairy Free/Whole30: Leave off the cheese for dairy free/Whole30.
Vinegar: I love this with balsamic vinegar. Would also be great with red wine vinegar.
Protein: I didn't add any cooked protein, I don't find this salad needs it. If you want more protein, you could add on some cooked chicken.
