Winter Chopped Salad

Pin It

I have a friend who loves chopped salads and has recently turned me on to the concept of them.  When we meet for lunch she usually has a cobb salad of sorts, which usually includes chicken, eggs and cheese.  I like the idea of a chopped salad without these ingredients so  I usually end up asking for whatever vegetarian ingredients I can get in the restaurant and make my own salad on the spot.   This particular salad I make at home and it is hearty enough to have as a main meal in the winter time since its ingredients mixed with the lettuces make this meal feel light yet it satisfies.  When you feel like having  something that won’t weigh you down but is also a comfort food, this is the dish.  As far as the greens in the salad, I love arugula and mixed greens but you can use whatever lettuces you have a taste for.
