Experiencing perfectly proportioned bites of different flavors and textures makes chopped salads so irresistible. Our Apple Fennel Chopped Salad is a delightful recipe for moving into colder months with less variety of produce, although it could be enjoy year round.
I was inspired to share a chopped salad recipe after going to a restaurant that makes them. A twenty-something year old was putting mine together and he started to chop the salad with a mezzaluna. With one hand on the chopping block and the other wielding the mezzaluna like an axe toward the chopping block, my eyes lit up with fear. I thought I was going to witness an accidental amputation. The twenty-something year old turned to me and said, “Don’t worry, I do this all the time.” Well, he shouldn’t. Please rock your mezzaluna back and forth on the cutting board. If you want to chop, chop correctly with a chef’s knife. Make your chopped salads with safety!
