An excellent summer salad that can be altered to suit your liking. Other cheeses I have used include Cheddar and blue cheese. I have also added grilled chicken breast to make it a dinner salad.

This colorful and elegant side dish is so easy to make. I love making this with beets and shallots straight from our local farmers’ market. Green onions or chives may be substituted for the shallot if you prefer.
