Candace Cameron Bure's Chopped Salad
I haven't tried this yet, but it looked great on Twitter. Seems like a nice healthy, fast summer lunch or dinner! Some variations include switching the lunchmeats with grilled chicken or leftover broiled turkey or chicken breast, adding drained and rinsed black beans and adding pretty much any veggie you can possibly think of!
Chopped Salad Recipe
This salad is SO easy to make and it's incredibly healthy and delicious! There's no right way to do it- just get chopping. If you're making it for yourself, chopped about 1/2 cup of each thing. If you're making it for a group- go up to 2 or 3 cups of each ingredient!
Here's what I used: Ingredients
Yellow Bell Pepper
Corn (raw from the cob)
Egg Whites Only (Hard boiled)
Ham (deli sliced)
Turkey (deli sliced)
Salami (deli sliced)
Chopped everything into bite sized pieces and mix! Add pepper to taste. I drizzled a teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil after it was plated. I suggest doing so, incase you have leftovers. This way it won't get soggy in the fridge.
Here's the Key: The Avocado adds it's own oil- keeping everything together and flavorful. You really don't need any dressing because of it.
I only added pepper to taste because the ham and salami have enough salt on their own. Remember, salt in excess isn't good for you.
If you're a vegetarian, skip the meats!
Hard boiled egg whites are pure protein!! If you're needing more protein in your diet, this is a great way to get it.
Aside from the meats and eggs, everything should be chopped raw. No cooking required! How easy is that?
