Recipe of the Week - Chopped Salad

Chopped Salad Recipe - A Family Favorite

Here is a recipe that is a definite winner with the whole family!  I cannot believe how much and how fast the kids scarf this down!  I got this recipe from the book Reshaping It All by Candace Cameron Bure.  (She was on Full House).  This book is fabulous and talks not only about healthy eating as a lifestyle but incorporates the whole family and intertwines everything with scripture.  It is great! Check out the Blog here! Their Blog gives encouragement, support, details, and creative ideas.  Candace also shares pictures and videos on how she applies her writing in her own family on a daily basis.
This salad is SO easy to make and it's incredibly healthy and delicious! There's no right way to do it- just get chopping. If you're making it for yourself, chop about 1/2 cup of each thing. If you're making it for a group- go up to 2 or 3 cups of each ingredient!

Here's what I used: Ingredients
Spinach leaves
Yellow Bell Pepper
Corn (raw from the cob)
Egg Whites Only (Hard boiled)
Ham (deli sliced)
Turkey (deli sliced)
Salami (deli sliced)

Chop everything into bite sized pieces and mix! Add pepper to taste. I drizzled a teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil after it was plated. I suggest doing so, in case you have leftovers. This way it won't get soggy in the fridge.

Here's the Key: The Avocado adds it's own oil- keeping everything together and flavorful. You really don't need any dressing because of it.

I only added pepper to taste because the ham and salami have enough salt on their own. Remember, salt in excess isn't good for you.

If you're a vegetarian, skip the meats!

Hard boiled egg whites are pure protein!! If you're needing more protein in your diet, this is a great way to get it.

Aside from the meats and eggs, everything should be chopped raw. No cooking required! How easy is that?

Hope you enjoy this incredibly easy and uber tasty salad! It's lunch OR dinner!
