Chopped Salad Recipes

The beauty of a chopped salad is in the perfectly sized ingredients making everything bite-size and able to be easily stacked on a fork.

Chopping all the ingredients small delivers a terrific combination of flavors in every single bite.

    Mary, thank you for such delicious recipes. This is such a dumb question but over and over I see recipes for fresh corn and I avoid them because I’m not sure if the if the corn is cooked before it is removed from the cob. This recipe has my husbands name on it. I know he will love it.

    • Mary Younkin says

      Unless the recipe specifically says to cook it, it is raw corn. (Until a few years ago, I didn’t know you could eat it that way!) Fresh sweet corn is amazingly juicy and crisp. You’re going to love it, Judy.

    Wow! This salad was amazing. I fixed it for our dinner last night (along with your Ranch dressing) and my hubby loved it as much as I did! We had enough left over for lunch today.
    Thank you for this wonderful recipe!
