    Unfortunately, I made 2 batches of this and totally forgot to set it out for my party. However, I found that if you don't eat it promptly, it gets very runny and soggy. I probably won't make it again. :(

    This was a very tasty salad but definitely not meant for leftovers. I had half the salad leftover the next day and had to through it out because the lettuce was swimming in its own liquid.
