Chopped salad

This is a healthy light summer dish that we tried out recently for dinner. I actually came across the recipe on Candace Cameron Bure's Twitter post and her pics of it looked so good that I went to the store the next day to gather the ingredients. Honestly, you can use whatever veggies you have on hand in your fridge.

The directions are pretty simple. Chop about 2-3 cups of each ingredient for a group. You can eye it and decide how much you need for one or two of you.

Here are the ingredients I used:
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Spinach leaves
  • Bell pepper
  • Tomato
  • Corn
  • Avocado
  • Egg whites (hard boiled)
  • Turkey
  • Salami
  • Parmesan cheese for sprinkling on top
Chop it all into bite size pieces and add pepper to taste. Drizzle a teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil after plating.

If you have any great summer salad recipes, please share. I am always on the lookout for something new!
