Notes

Melissa's Modifications:
This is a light and favorful salad. If you are dairy intolerant (or Vegan), use non-dairy Feta cheese My dairy free cheese of choice is VioLife which as great Feta flavor and holds up well in the salad. You can omit the oil if you wish, just use the mint and citrus of your choice for the dressing. A little splash of fresh OJ works as well for that added citrus!
The dish can be made with other berries such as raspberries, blackberries can be used depending on your tastes!
