Chopped vegetable salads were all the rage a few decades back, and now they're trendy again. Once you discover how delicious and versatile this salad is, you'll wonder why it ever went out of style!
Use whatever vegetables you like; just make sure to cut everything about the same size. The dressing is wonderfully flavorful, so you might want to double the recipe and save some for another use.
|2 tablespoons||minced fresh Italian parsley|
|1 tablespoon||Snipped fresh chives|
|1 clove||Earthbound Farm Organic Garlic (minced)|
|1/4 cup||crumbled blue cheese|
|Salt and freshly ground pepper (to taste)|
|14 ounces||Earthbound Farm Organic Hearts of Romaine Salad (or about 1 head Earthbound Farm Organic Iceberg Lettuce)|
|1/2 cup||fresh sweet peas|
|1 cup||fresh corn kernels (1 to 2 ears)|
|1/2 cup||diced Earthbound Farm Organic Zucchini|
|1/2 cup||diced yellow summer squash|
|1/2 cup||diced Earthbound Farm Organic Carrots|
|1 cup||diced ripe Earthbound Farm Organic Tomato|
|1/2 cup||diced Earthbound Farm Organic Cucumber|
|1/2 cup||diced radish|
Combine the first 7 ingredients in blender and purée.
Place the romaine in a large bowl. (If you're using a head of iceberg, roughly chop the lettuce into 1/2-inch pieces before placing in the bowl.) Add the vegetables and toss to combine.
Add 1/2 cup of the dressing and toss to blend, adding more dressing as desired. Serve immediately.
