Notes

  1. This salad can be made up to 3 days ahead of time. Store, covered in the refrigerator. 
  2. The preserved lemons give the salad a nice burst of citrus flavor. You can buy them in a Middle Eastern market but they are very easy to make. You can use them in salads, dressings, or stirred into anything that needs a burst of citrus flavor!
