Notes

Melissa’s Modifications:
This is a light and flavorful salad. If you are dairy intolerant (or Vegan), use non-dairy feta cheese. My dairy-free cheese of choice is VioLife which has 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 touch of citrus!
The dish can be made with other berries such as raspberries or blackberries, depending on your tastes! 
Loaded with vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, and iron.
