Ultimate Chopped Salad + Chambray Romper

Feb 22, 2017

When we were in NYC a few months ago we had lunch at Fred’s at Barney’s.   I had their chopped salad and loved it.  This is a spin on it!  The one I had there didn’t have blue cheese or bacon but I had some on hand so I added it in.  Let’s be real bacon and cheese are never a bad idea, EVER.

I used green goddess dressing for mine- local friends Dellz’s has the best goddess dressing and they sell it by the bottle now.  I always buy it when I pick up lunch.  It’s so good I could drink it.  This would also be great served with a balsamic dressing as well.


|| U L T I M A T E   C H O P P E D   S A L A D ||

– 1 head romaine shredded thinly

– 1 avocado chopped and drizzled with lemon juice and salt

– 1 pear diced

– 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved

– 1/2 cup chopped red onion

– haricot verts (french green beans), chopped into 1 inch pieces

– 6 pieces cooked and crumbled bacon

– 1/4 cup blue cheese

– 1 rotisserie chicken shredded

– green goddess or balsamic vinaigrette dressing

Bring a large pot of water to a boil.  Place the green beans in and boil for 3 minutes.  Remove and place in an ice bath.  Drain and then chop into 1 inch pieces.

Cook bacon and crumble.

Assemble lettuce, tomatoes, pears, avocados, beans, bacon, cheese, red onion and chicken in a large bowl.  Toss all together before serving and drizzle with dressing.


I have decided on Wednesday’s with my recipes I am going to share my favorite dressing room finds from that week,  This week it was this adorable chambray romper.  Super soft and such a cute fit.  It runs TTS I am wearing a size 4.  It is currently 30% off with no code needed.
