Great choice for school or office lunches. It’s healthy, quick and could be prepared the night before, doesn’t wilt or spoil easily.

This sounds really good and I look forward to making it soon. However, the olive oil and lemon juice directions are a little off. The main recipe calls for 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided, but never says where or when to add the second tablespoon. The main recipe also says to add 1 tablespoon lemon juice but lemon juice is not in the main list of ingredients. The dressing recipe calls for 2 tablespoons lemon juice but the instruction say the remaining 2 tablespoons. I assume the intent is to have 1 tablespoon each of olive oil and lemon juice in the main recipe and 1 tablespoon olive oil and 2 tablespoons lemon juice in the dressing but it would be helpful to clarify. Thanks!
