Italian Chopped Salad- A salad you will actually enjoy.

Truly the best chopped salad on earth. I could actually drink the dressing. Try it and thank me later.

Italian Chopped Salad

Servings: 4 servings


  • 3 cups romaine lettuce chopped ( chop it very well!!! this is key.)

  • 3 cups iceberg lettuce chopped

  • 1 15 oz can of garbanzo beans drained and rinsed well

  • 1/2 cup tomatoes diced

  • 1/2 cup cucumber diced

  • 1/2 cup low moisture mozzarella cheese diced

  • 1/3 cup other protein such as chopped salami, chicken or smoked salmon (optional)

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • Salt & pepper

  • Lemon juice to serve


  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar

  • 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard

  • 1 clove garlic minced or crushed

  • Pinch of dried oregano salt & pepper

I recommend quadrupling the dressing recipe and keeping on hand for all of your salad needs!


  1. Start by making your dressing by whisking together all ingredients.

  2. Pour about 2 tbsp of dressing over your garbanzo beans and refrigerate for about an hour. If you don't have time to marinate the beans its okay, but a major game changer!

  3. Combine the rest of the ingredients and toss together with the dressing.

  4. Serve with lots of lemon juice and top with more grated parm.
