Zingy Chopped Salad

Published on: 05/02/2024

I absolutely love a good salad and this chopped salad is an excellent salad. This salad is packed full of protein. The pepperocinis provide an excellent crunch. The dressing gives just the right amount of zing.

To me this salad is a main dish salad and makes 4-6 servings. You could definitely use this as a side salad and get 8-10 small salad servings.
