Squash, Apple and Feta Chopped Salad

We made this salad over the weekend and took the whole thing outside to eat picnic style in our building’s front lawn. I probably eat a bigger volume than I’d like to admit but it was so very good. The dressing is tangy and the earthy flavors of the garbanzos and squash bounce really good off its zest.
