Chopped Chef’s Salad


From EatingWell:  July/August 2013

We gave a classic chef’s salad recipe a healthy makeover with our own homemade healthy Thousand Island dressing recipe and reduced-sodium cheese and turkey. Those swaps slashed 260 calories and nearly a day’s worth of sodium (2,131 mg!) per serving compared with traditional recipes.

4 servings, about 2 1/2 cups each | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes



  1. Toss lettuce, chickpeas, eggs, cheese, turkey and carrot in a large bowl.
  2. Combine mayonnaise, ketchup, relish and vinegar in a small bowl. Pour the dressing over the salad; gently toss to combine. Top with a generous grinding of pepper.
