Warmer weather is upon us which means lots and lots of potlucks, cook-outs and BBQ’s. I don’t know about you but, no outdoor meal is complete without a crisp and refreshing veggie salad. I mean, you have to have something healthy to go along with all of that grilled meat, right?

Lately I’m not such a lettuce girl. I think I’m just burnt out on salads made of leafy greens. I am however, a huge fan of salads made with chopped veggies. I find it really exciting to try different combinations of crisp, raw veggies, tossed in a refreshing vinaigrette.

Chopped veggie salads are a great way to get a ton of vegetables into your diet. They are also an easy and economical way to serve salad to a crowd.  Simply pick a few of your favorite vegetables, chop them up really small and toss them with some fresh herbs and your favorite vinaigrette.

You can also sprinkle over your favorite nuts and cheese for extra flavor and crunch. The best part is, the veggies can be chopped the night before so all you have to do come serving time is toss in some dressing and you are good to go.

One of my newest veggie salad obsessions is one made with finely chopped red cabbage. It’s sturdy leaf and robust flavor allows it to hold up nicely in the vinaigrette and it’s so much more exciting than regular lettuce.  

Not only is the color of this veggie salad gorgeous, it’s full of fiber, vitamin K, vitamin C and folate. Toss up a chopped veggie salad for your next summer get together and let me know what combinations you come up with.
