I don’t usually include oil as part of my salad dressing, but made an exception here. BUT we didn’t use the entire salad dressing — we only used about 2 tablespoons at the most. We’re saving the rest for future use. It absolutely does not need that much dressing — it might render it soggy and it would be just too much. Original recipe included 4 oz crumbled feta cheese, but I used NO cheese — no cheese required 🙂
