  • This salad will keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days in an air tight container. I do think because of the white beans this salad is best the first couple of days otherwise the white beans do get pretty soft. If you plan to use it throughout the week you could leave the white beans out and just add them when you are ready to eat the salad.
  • This salad is easily modified to your tastes. Try adding artichokes, a different beans, green olives, fire roasted tomatoes or goat cheese.
