Layering salad ingredients is such an easy way to impress guests—and this flavourful layered salad is ready in just 15 minutes. Toss the salad at the table so they can admire all the textures and colours. To create a thicker dressing, strain the yogurt prior to combining it with the other ingredients. To drain, place unbleached paper coffee filters in the bottom of a strainer and place over a dish or bowl to capture liquid. Pour yogurt on top of filter and cover the strainer. Place in refrigerator and allow liquid to drain until it reaches the desired consistency.
