Chopped salad with lemon vinaigrette

 In Recipes, Salads & Starters

chopped salad

During the warmer months, this salad is served more often than I’d like to admit. I serve it with grilled meats and fish, with pita breads and dips and often as lunch when I’m too lazy to make anything else. It’s one of those recipes that I’ve had in my ‘repertoire’ forever and has become such a constant in our lives. I’ve never even thought of sharing it here as it really is just too simple for words but a friend recently asked that I send her the recipe and so I thought I might as well post it here as well.

The great thing about a chopped salad, as with any salad, is that you can add whatever you want. If you’d like you can add avocado, celery, carrots, sweetcorn, spring onion and sugar snap peas. Anything goes, really. I just have red onion, tomato, cucumber and feta at hand permanently so these are featured in this salad more often than not. I like dressing it with a really sharp and vibrant dressing and this lemon vinaigrette works perfectly.
