Truth be told, I probably prefer non-chopped salads over chopped salads. What I love about the salad chopper though is that it's really the only way that my children love salads. They will have a little bit of a regular salad but if I make a chopped salad, they chow it down!
Really, you can put just about anything in the salad that you would like. Here, I have a combination of lettuce, peppers, carrots, spinach, green onions, and apples.
The secret is in the apples! As long as I put one apple into the chopped salad, the kids will eat it and love it! I've tried skipping the apple before. It doesn't go over very well.
Every thing is put into the bowl (medium sized pieces to start) and then you chop away! When getting started, I use an up and down motion. Once the pieces are smaller, it's easy to roll the chopper.
Another thing I like about the chopped salad is that it requires very little dressing. Here we used just a tinch of good balsamic and extra virgin olive oil.
Voila! The finished product. The kids love pumpkin seeds and parmesan cheese on their salads.
Baard and I love a little parmesan cheese and avocado on ours.
Don't forget! There's a GIVEAWAY on a little spinach and on The Middlest Sister.
