This easy salad is inspired by one I had recently at Brown’s Social House (which I’m in love with, by the way). I had it alongside sushi and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. Most house salads are boring but theirs is loaded with good stuff; walnuts, feta and black beans. I decided to do a chopped take on it but I also added some dried cranberries, avocado and hummus dressing. This was a great “single girl” supper on wing night and I also think a double batch of it would be great at a potluck or other event. What’s your favorite salad recipe? I’m always looking for new ones!
Loaded Chopped Salad
Serves 2 generously as an entrée, 4 or more as a side
- 4 cups spring greens, chopped
- 3 cups shredded coleslaw mix, chopped
- ½ can black beans, drained, rinsed and chopped
- 1 avocado, chopped
- ½ cup crumbled feta
- ¼ cup chopped walnuts
- ¼ cup dried cranberries
- 2 tbsp. hummus ( I used garlic)
- 2 tsp. lemon juice
- 2 tsp. water
Toss together chopped salad ingredients and give everything another chop altogether. Stir together dressing ingredients and toss with the salad.
