How To Make A Better Chopped Salad Than You Can Buy

Photo credit: Heather Christo

There's no denying the fact that salads get boring. No matter how many combinations of greens, fixings and dressing one can make, this healthy meal faces some steep competition with, well, everything else. But since we have to eat our veggies, we're thankful for chopped salads to help mix things up.

Chopped salads are just like regular salads, only with a different presentation -- the ingredients are chopped, greens and all, and incorporated together instead of layered. It's a minor detail, but one with lots of options.

Oh, and one other thing: Chopped salads cost a fortune at specialty salad shops, where you can order your own bespoke creation. So why not save some money and make your own? Check out our favorite recipes below.
