Ingredients Needed for Chopped Salad

Lettuce – For this recipe, you should use a combination of iceberg lettuce and radicchio. I didn’t have radicchio at my local store, so I used red cabbage, but radicchio is best.

Vegetables – You’ll need diced cucumbers, sliced hearts of palm, diced green olives, and diced red onion. I didn’t have red onion, so I used yellow, but red is best. I also add some diced jalapeno because I love spice, but this is optional.

Cheese – I used a combination of grated parmesan and crumbled blue cheese. Trust me, it’s delicious.

Protein – Be sure to add a hard-boiled egg. Grated of course.

Seasoning – Use salt and pepper to season the salad.

Dressing – The dressing is a combination of Greek yogurt, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper, fresh basil and garlic.
