Chopped Salad Recipe

This salad is SO easy to make and incredibly healthy and delicious! There's no right way to do it --just get to 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.

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 love that!

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. I also put a teaspoon of feta cheese on top.
Hard boiled eggs 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?

I hope you enjoy this incredibly easy and uber tasty salad! It's perfect for lunch OR dinner!
