Storage: Keep any leftover salad in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 to 4 days. Just keep in mind that the veggies will soften as they sit in the dressing, possibly making the leftovers soggy. Dried Mint: Traditionally dried mint is used, however, I normally have fresh herbs on hand. If you would like to use dried mint, swap out the fresh mint for 1 teaspoon dried mint.
