This recipe takes about 30 minutes to hand chop, but stored in large Tupperware, it will keep fresh 4-5 days in the refrigerator. If you have a food processor or a mandolin, we suggest you use it to save on time. When you’re done, you’ll have a salad ready for the entire week that you can add many delicious things to: marinated artichoke hearts, Greek olives, sliced pears (with toasted walnuts – yummy!), avocados, leftover meat, or anything you can think of (okay, not Reese’s Pieces).
1/2 bunch spinach
1/2 bunch each of two parsley (regular and flat/Italian)
1/2 bunch dandelion greens
4-5 chard leafs
1/2 head/bunch Bok choy
1/2 head of Napa cabbage
6 celery stalks
1/2 bunch kale
2-3 zucchini, grated
2-3 carrot, grated
1-2 fresh lemon or lime
- Chop all vegetables (except zucchini and carrot which will be grated) to a medium size.
- As you place into large mixing bowl, periodically squeeze fresh lemon or lime juice onto salad for freshness.
- Serve with simple vinaigrette dressing.
- Serving tip: Tear up some green leaf or red leaf or romaine lettuce as a bed to put the chopped salad on top of – it adds some sweetness to the ‘heavy’ vegetable base of the chopped salad.
