Chopped Salad…

Here’s a tasty new Chopped Salad recipe with a very tangy lime vinaigrette dressing…On the real, we had our very young film editor over while I was chopping this salad together and he said he doesn’t eat vegetables ever…“are you serious?” Guess what, I made him eat this absolutely delicious Chopped Salad and he loved it! Yep, don’t mess with me making vegetables taste good! This salad is basically a collection of random ingredients, inspired by my new favorite cookbook Balaboosta by Einat Admony that my amazing photographer Michael Brian gave to me as a gift. Shh, I love a new cookbook for any occasion… People always say they don’t know what to get me? I love adding to my cookbook collection, because I really use them! In this fresh recipe, the lime vinaigrette with black beans, corn kernels, jalapeño, spinach, bell pepper, cilantro, basil and avocado taste like heaven on earth. Who doesn’t want to taste heaven…

I’m all about healthy salads…
