Chopped Salad

Although the chopped salad requires a bit of prep time to cut up ingredients, it's not difficult to prepare. If you want to take some shortcuts, pick up cooked chicken breast and cooked bacon at the market. Unlike in many of its counterparts, pieces of Granny Smith apple add interesting flavor and texture to this terrific-tasting version dressed with balsamic vinaigrette.

CHOPPED SALAD

12 cups packed moderately finely chopped romaine lettuce (use two 9-ounce bags cut-up romaine lettuce, chopped finer than in bag)
2 cups diced grilled chicken breast
4 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced fine
2 medium avocados, pitted and chopped
1 cup fresh cooked OR frozen, thawed corn kernels
1/2 cup chopped crisp-cooked bacon (buy it cooked to save time)
3/4 cup small blue cheese crumbles
1 Granny Smith apple (leave skin on), chopped

Balsamic vinaigrette (recipe below)
In a large bowl, combine lettuce, chicken, tomatoes, avocado, corn, bacon, blue cheese and apples. Toss until mixed. Add amount of Balsamic Vinaigrette desired, tossing well.

Makes 3 to 4 large servings


BALSAMIC VINAIGRETTE: In a small food processor, combine 1/2 cup olive oil, 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, 1 generous teaspoon Dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon chopped shallots, 1 clove garlic, crushed, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Process until well blended. Makes a generous 1/2 cup dressing. If making in advance, refrigerate, covered, until serving time.
