Everyone loves a chopped salad, even those who don’t usually like salad. The combination of crisp bits of lettuce with a bevy of textures and flavors just can’t be underestimated.
This Crispy, Crunchy Chopped Salad is tossed with a classic vinaigrette with a twist from champagne vinegar and a hint of sweetness from agave nectar. Feel free to customize the salad, substituting pears or peaches for the apple, dried cranberries for the cherries, honey-roasted peanuts for the candied pecans and feta for the blue cheese. The salad is a delicious part of our Autumn Vegetarian Soup and Salad Supper and you can make it vegan by omitting the cheese.
Place lettuces, apples, green onions, cherries, pecans and cheese in a large salad bowl. Pour dressing over salad just before serving and toss to coat.
Makes 6 servings.
