We made this salad to accompany a roast chicken dinner and it got raves all around. The apple really elevated it (we used Granny Smith) and the dressing was simple without overpowering the flavors. Best of all, it held up beautifully for leftovers the next day. You could use a spoon, but we used chopsticks!
"Use a Spoon" Chopped Salad
From EatingWell: November/December 2011
When Paul Newman and Michel Nischan opened their Westport, Connecticut, restaurant Dressing Room, Paul’s request was that the menu always include a chopped salad that you could eat with a spoon. This chopped salad recipe is full of great flavors, colors and textures, featuring celery, carrots, red pepper, apple, cucumber, greens, cabbage, goat cheese and almonds. This is great for any holiday meal: you can let it stand and it stays crisp.

This was super delicious !! Even 2 days later ! We all loved it,even the grandchildren ! ( but then , they love salads anyway !)
The work was well worth it! I used "feta" because that's what I had on hand .
I made this last night for today's lunch - chopped some finger while cutting up vegetables. It was worth it - this salad is super fresh, healthy and delicious! I took out apples and cucumbers and added snow peas also threw in some red onion. Great lunch, couldn't stop eating.
Overall, a great salad! I am not a fan of goat cheese so I used blue cheese crumbles instead and it was tremendous. I also added some pear to bump up the fruit quotient. Served it this weekend to some friends and they loved it so much, they wanted the recipe.
Crumbled goat cheese is a little different. Still the same thing, but comes in a circle container. It comes pre-crumbled so your hands aren't covered in soft goat cheese.
