Notes

You can assemble your salad up to 24 hours in advance and cover and place in the refrigerator. In addition, you can make your dressing and store in a sealed container in the refrigerator. When you are ready to serve, you can dress and toss your salad. 
The salad dressing is good for only 3 days in the refrigerator as it has raw garlic, then you will need to pitch.
