      Hi Jennifer– you can make the salad a day ahead and chill it, but wait until the day you serve it to toss it with the dressing.

    Just made this…beyond delicious! We are having a heck of a heat wave here in MN right now and this is the PERFECT side to have with our grilled kabobs! I’m definitely keeping this recipe on hand 🙂

    What a nice way to stitch up an Israeli salad. I eat variations of this salad at every meal

    Years ago my sister gave me a Donvier Yogurt Cheesemaker,
    that’ I’ve enjoyed. So much so that’s it’s slightly bent out of shape now. The grooved top makes it easy to fill with a filling of your own e.g., crushed sweetened fruit, olive mix,
    whatever. You can also flavor the plain yogurt before the
    drip process and get some interesting spreads or dips.

    It may not make as much as the colander-cheesecloth method,
    but it is neater, and takes up less space in my small fridge.
