How To Make A Great Chopped Salad

Please click HERE to go out to the blog so you don't miss any ads or videos.

I love salads. I judge a restaurant many times by how good their salads are. It's one thing that I pretty much always order when I'm eating out.

One of the best salads I've ever had I shared with Dr. T at Farina in downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico. The salad was so big that it had to be shared. It had so many different vegetables chopped in little bits. It was delicious.

I spent that summer trying to recreate this salad for us to have with meals. I had a hard time doing it, but I recently, after many attempts, found a way to cut my lettuce so that it is in as small of bites at all the other veggies.

My favorite veggies to put in my chopped salad are: lettuce, cucumber, carrots, red onion, zucchini, yellow squash, cabbage, and bell peppers. Those ingredients make the best flavors with any dressing!!!

So here are a few pictures of the last time I made this salad. I didn't have all the ingredients listed above, but it was still wonderful.

I found this chopper on Amazon and it was a game changer as far as finishing some of the vegetables with a final CHOP!!

 
I make money on anything bought off of these ads.

These double bladed chopper knives are extremely sharp. I had to find a special place at the back of a drawer to store it. It has been a good purchase!!


I started with purple cabbage which is pretty easy to chop.

The trick to "chopping" the lettuce is to start by cutting thin lines.

Next, cut thin lines going the other way.
I then use my new chopper to finish any pieces I think are too large.

Add any other veggies that have been chopped along with the lettuce.


Toss

Finished product!! It is oh so good!!



I'm ready to make this easy, healthy salad as part of most meals this summer!!
