    Hello Jamie,
    This salad looks real yummy! I wanted to ask you if it sets for a day or two. I would like to make it to take camping and am wondering if I should bring all ingredients separately and put together the day we eat or is it okay for it to sit for a day?
    Thank you,I love your recipes

    This recipe looks really good. Is it a salad that will keep for a day or two? I want to take this camping and am wondering if I can make ahead or if I should bring the ingredients separately then put together right before we eat. Thank you, I love your blog.

      Hi Jennifer,
      This would be super yummy to take along camping. I would suggest reserving a few tablespoons of the dressing (before you put the rest on the salad). When you are ready to serve add the reserved dressing to the salad just to freshen it up a bit, but otherwise I think it will work well.
      Best of luck!
