This salad is a total stunner. Not only is it gorgeous (cue the oohs and aahs!), but it’s also tasty and versatile. You can use any dressing you’d like. I opted for my Lemon Vinaigrette because the lemon-olive oil mixture hits the spot, but you can easily swap in your fave store-bought, a homemade recipe or even a drizzle of EVOO, fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper  The herbs are also interchangeable, which gives you the flexibility to use whatever is growing in your garden or on sale. Feta is optional, but I always choose to use it because it adds a creamy satisfaction. Finally, you can chop the eggs and toss all the ingredients together along with the dressing for more of a chopped salad feel instead of arranging it on a platter, if you’d prefer. Leftovers are amazing the next day from the fridge. Don’t worry about the eggs getting tossed around and crushed—that just makes it more satisfying.

To make the dressing: Add all dressing ingredients to a small bowl and whisk until everything is well combined. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
