Farmer’s Market Chopped Salad

Farmer’s Market Chopped Salad

This crunchy salad is a heartier alternative to the usual leafy side dish. It’s a welcome addition to a casual gathering and holds up well on a buffet table.

  • Cuisine:




For the salad:   

4 ounces of green beans cut in 1-inch pieces
4 ounces of sugar snap peas
3 mini cucumbers cut into 1/2-inch dice
2 ribs celery chopped
1 red bell pepper chopped
4 radishes cut into 1/2-inch dice
1 small head lollo rossa lettuce or other red leaf lettuce, chopped
1/3 cup of red onion chopped
1/3 cup of crumbled blue cheese   

For the dressing:   

4 teaspoons of white balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons of shallots chopped
1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
3/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the green beans and cook 1 minute. Add the sugar snap peas and cook 1 minute longer. Drain, rinse under cold water and drain again. Cut the sugar snaps across in half and transfer, with the beans, to a large bowl.
  2. Add the cucumbers, celery, bell pepper, radishes, lettuce, onion, and blue cheese to the bowl with the green beans.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the vinegar, mustard, shallots, oil, salt, and pepper; pour over the vegetables and toss well.
