    Just before serving, pour dressing over salad. Add pita bread strips; toss gently.

Expert Tips

  • Kalamata olives are purple-black Greek olives with a slender oval shape and rich flavor. Each olive is slit to allow a wine vinegar marinade to fully penetrate the flesh. Kalamata olives are packed with olive oil or vinegar in jars.
  • Ripe olives can be used in place of the kalamata olives in this salad.
  • Prepare pocket bread strips up to 12 hours ahead; store in a plastic bag. Combine the salad blend, vegetables, olives and cheese in a serving bowl. Cover the salad with a damp paper towel and plastic wrap; refrigerate up to 12 hours. Just before serving, toss the salad with dressing and bread strips.
