Chopped Salad

For those of you who only cook with specific measurements, you aren't going to like this, but I promise you that YOU CAN do it. You will feel like a domestic diva when it is done. There is no messing up this salad. REALLY. And when your mother-in-law asks you for the recipe she will be so impressed because all you have to remember is what you put in measurements required.

This salad is really versatile!


Chopped Romaine and/or Red Leaf lettuce


Tomatoes, diced

Apples {soaked in salt water to keep from turning yucky brown}

Red onion, diced

Avocado, diced

Blue Cheese Crumbles

*don't forget the bacon!

Balsamic Vinaigrette:
1/3 cup Balsamic Vinegar {Trader Joes}

2/3 cup olive oil {Trader Joes}

2-3 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard {Trader Joes}

Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


Fresh Lemonade or Newman's Own Lemonade

Chopped Salad

BBQ Chicken

Toasted French Bread on the grill

Fresh Peaches and Cream {ICE CREAM!}

Happy Wednesday!

This is a great picnic salad. I packed the salads into the BIO BOXES from Cash and Carry, packed individual dressing etc.

You will want to either go out for ice cream :) or pack COOKIES! ENJOY!
