Tasty Tip
I like to serve this salad with the pita chips on top to prevent them from getting too soggy. Also, dress the salad right before serving to keep the veggies crisp and fresh and not wilted from the acid in the dressing. Or easily turn this salad into a main dish by topping it with cooked chicken or fish.
