Chopped Salad with Strawberries is a hearty salad filled with fresh vegetables, two kinds of lettuce, strawberries, croutons and is topped with a delicious vinaigrette.

I love salads. I especially love to order large salads when I go out to eat, so I decided I need to come up with some restaurant quality salads at home. Chopped Salad with Strawberries was a big success.

I opted for two kinds of lettuce, mixed greens and iceberg lettuce. I love the crispness of the iceberg lettuce with the mixed greens. For vegetables I used a sweet red pepper, a shallot, and a seedless cucumber. I added in fresh strawberries, feta cheese and home made croutons.

For the dressing, I made a home made herb vinaigrette and used a strawberry vinegar. I love vinaigrette’s, they are so easy to whip up and are way better than a store bough salad dressing. Trust me, it’s worth the time to make a home made vinaigrette.

I am looking forward to creating more salads!

Enjoy!

Chopped Salad with Strawberries

Ingredients

  • 1 head iceberg lettuce, chopped

  • 1 large or 2 medium sweet red peppers, chopped
  • 1 seedless cucumber, chopped
  • Feta Cheese crumbles
  • Croutons
  • For the Herb Vinaigrette:
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. bail
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

Instructions

  • Arrange the lettuce, veggies, strawberries and cheese in a large bowl.
  • Whisk together all the ingredients for the vinaigrette and pour over the salad.
  • To make home made croutons:
  • Use a 1/2 loaf of day old bread, french or italian loaf works great. Cut the bread into large chunks and add to a baking sheet. Drizzle some olive oil over the bread chunks and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Keep an eye on them, you don't want to over bake the croutons.
