Chopped Salad with Green Goddess Dressing

This recipe for a Chopped Salad with Green Goddess dressing is so delicious. I love picking up local produce. This salad has the most beautiful finds from the farmer’s market. I found the prettiest purple Napa cabbage and watermelon radishes there. I also picked up some super fragrant dill, carrots, and a lovely bag of mixed lettuces.

This recipe allows the flavors of the vegetables and herbs to shine. The goddess dressing is really great. I like it especially because the capers add a little extra umami that balances out the lemon nicely. You could add any fun vegetables. It’s great to start the year out on a good note and this recipe is a great step in that direction! You can find more great salad recipes here and here!
