Italian Chopped Salad

An Italian chopped salad is refreshing and light. It is perfect for lunch or dinner and can be customized in so many ways. Below is the base for my favorite salad. You can easily add chopped Italian meats, hard boiled eggs, chicken or anything you would like to give this salad more substance and turn it into a meal. It comes together in no time and is sure to soon be a favorite.

Recipe yields 6 servings

1 large head of iceberg lettuce
1 red onion
1 cucumber
1 can of olives
3 roasted red peppers

4-6 tbsp of your favorite dressing

Dice your cucumbers.

Next comes the red onion.

Onto the roasted red peppers.

Finely shred your lettuce and give it a good rinse.

Add all of your ingredients to a large bowl.

Toss everything together.

Get your salad dressing ready. I use Four Seasons Italian - it is delicious!

Cover your salad in the dressing and mix it together really well to evenly coat. Serve and enjoy!
