Leave it to the Whole Foods salad bar to help me make an awesome chopped salad.
The reason why I call this a shortcut chopped salad is because I didn’t have the time or the energy to buy all of the vegetables individually and do the peeling & chopping myself. I went to the Whole Foods salad bar and filled up on the toppings I wanted for my salad… broccoli, peas, corn, feta, peppers, onions, edemame, and shredded carrots.
Lettuce is the only thing I like to chop myself. There is something about fresh romaine hearts that adds an entire new level to a salad. Getting them from the salad bar grosses me out for some reason.
I also got a roticerie chicken and an avocado.
The rest was a piece of cake! I chopped up the chicken into bite size pieces and same with the avocado. From there, I put all of the veggies and chicken into my salad bowl and served it with a couple of dressings on the side. My two favorite dressings are Briana’s Saucy Ginger Mandarin and Trader Joe’s Light Champagne Vinaigrette.
This makes for awesome leftovers just made sure you put the dressing on the side so the salad doesn’t get soggy.
What would you put in your own chopped salad?
