This is an adaptation of one of the most popular recipes on the site, my Autumn Chopped Salad. If you're looking for a fresh, summer salad that works as a side dish or entree, this is your answer. It's easy to pull together and packed with flavor. I guarantee it can make even the biggest salad-hater into a salad-lover.
