North Hollywood Personal Training | This is one of my favorite things to eat...

A few days ago I posted about upgrading your habits, and in it I mentioned something about chopped salads.

And then I realized that chopped salad deserved an email all its own.

I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t LOVE a good chopped salad.

Even though it takes an extra minute or two to make, it is SO good, it feels like you’re treating yourself.

And that’s what it’s all about, right? Upgrading our habits, one at a time!

You don’t have to use anything elaborate for this salad – get a mix of your favorites and make sure they are fresh.

Here are some ideas:

     Fresh leafy greens (spring mix, leaf lettuce, romaine, spinach, kale)

     Carrots, celery, colorful bell peppers

     Cucumber

     Tomatoes

     Fruit (apples and berries are great additions)

     Almonds, walnuts

     Avocado

     Tofurky deli slices or Chick’n Strips

     Miyoko’s Cheese 😋

     And if you want to jazz it up, pumpkin seeds and roasted butternut squash are also great at this time of year!

Before you assemble the salad, make sure your produce has been cleaned and  thoroughly dried. Chopping can make it more watery than usual, which can affect your salad’s texture.

Toss all your ingredients except avocado into a salad bowl … and then dump it back out onto a chopping board.

Using a large, sharp knife, chop your ingredients into bite-sized pieces. When your salad has reached the perfect consistency, put it back in the bowl, drizzle it with your favorite dressing and top with avocado and “cheese” if you’re using them.

My favorite salad dressing is a homemade olive oil & apple cider vinegar combo with Himalayan salt, fresh pepper, smoked paprika and tons of garlic!

It’s really easy to make. It’s basically a 1:3 ratio of vinegar to oil. So if you’re making 1 serving, put ½ tbsp of apple cider vinegar and 1½ tbsp of oil into a mason jar or other covered container and shake it ‘til it’s combined. Taste and adjust the vinegar if you want more. Mix it into the salad and it’s time to eat!

This is a really fast and easy salad that you’ll actually look forward to. Try it and let me know what you think.
