Pro tip: when serving a salad with many components such as this one, reserve some of the prettier items like olives or cherry tomatoes to garnish with. That way there is more of a "wow factor". This is a restaurant trick. We save the more expensive and beautiful elements to sprinkle on top to give it more eye appeal. Everyone knows that your first bite of food is with the eyes!
