Loaded Chopped Salad

chopped

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!
