Fiesta Chopped Salad


Love this salad. I tried it for the first time tonight. I highly recommend it. I had it with a turkey burger and thought I was in love. It really was flavorful. My pictures aren't the best but the salad sure is! Try it!


Fiesta Chopped Salad


1 med. red pepper chopped
1 med. yellow pepper chopped
1 med. tomato, seeded and chopped (I did not seed it)
1 med. cucumber, seeded and chopped (same as above)
1 small zucchini, chopped
2 green onions, chopped (I used dried onions)
2 T fresh parsley (I didn't use this)
2 T olive oil
1 T red wine vinegar (I used balsamic)
1/2 tsp sugar (I used stevia)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 large ripe avocado, peeled and chopped (you could also substitute olives here)
1 T lemon juice
In a large bowl combine the first 7 ingredients. Combine oil, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper in a tight-fitting lidded container and shake well. Drizzle over veggies and toss to coat. Toss avocado with lemon juice; sprinkle over salad.

On another note, on top of my turkey patty I had this really awesome garlic sauce that I purchased from Costco. I am not sorry I bought this. It is really yummy.

Yum, I can't wait to try this recipe. I will wait for the "fruits" of my garden though. Brett says we're starting to see lots of blossoms, which means (squeal) veggies!!!! :)

Strangely enough, I want to eat this! It looks really really yummy! P.S. I just stumbled across this blog and seeing as my semester is soon ending, I will have more time to cook. So, I think it is time for all these ladies to start posting so I can start experimenting and learning to cook more than just peach cobbler, chicken over rice, and casseroles! :) Ok, I'll step down. Thank you.
