This salad feels so fresh but also hearty because everything is minimally chopped! Simply toss everything together and use the tzatziki, tapenade, and hummus as dips.

That's it! It's so easy and beautiful. It's a great salad to have for a dinner party, backyard bash, and to snack on all summer long.
