This is one of those sal­ads that tastes even bet­ter after it sits for a few hours. Like pasta or potato salad, it needs a lit­tle time for the ingre­di­ents to meld together and mar­i­nate. This par­tic­u­lar com­bi­na­tion is pretty easy to keep stocked year-round, but make sure to sub­sti­tute any of the veg­etable ingre­di­ents for what­ever is fresh and excit­ing. I like to add aspara­gus in the spring and grilled corn in the fall. Roasted beets and root veg­gies make awe­some addi­tions through­out the win­ter. However, you choose to spice this salad up, make sure you use a more del­i­cate olive oil for your dress­ing to really let the cit­rus and veg­gies shine.
