Allow the salad to sit for a few minutes before serving to meld the flavors.

Cook's notes: Salad without vinaigrette can be assembled 2 hours ahead and kept at room temperature. Salad can be dressed 1 hour ahead and kept at room temperature, covered. Vinaigrette keeps, covered and chilled, 1 week.
