This salad can be made and refrigerated a few hours in advance of serving.

This salad can be a great addition to any picnic or potluck!

Not a fan of mozzarella cheese cubes? Try using coarsely grated mozzarella instead.

If you have diners who do not like cheese, you can serve the Parmesan and mozzarella cheese on the side.
