Everyone needs a go-to chopped salad and there’s nothing like a New York style chopped salad that you’d get at a salad bar. This vegetarian and gluten free version is veggie packed, with an easy tangy tahini dressing.
Vegetarian New York Chopped Salad
I love chopped salads, because they’re full of flavor, different textures, color, and always enjoyable with a tangy dressing. The New York chopped salad usually has some cured meats, veggies, and tons of crunchy lettuce. This vegetarian version has all the fixings, minus the meat!
If you’re looking for a go-to chopped salad, an easy lunch, a side dish during the summer to serve with grilled meats, or just a tasty way to pack in more veggies into your day, this salad is it! It’s gluten-free and vegetarian, but you can add some chopped salami to give it more salty and savory flavor.
Instead of chopped and cubed carrots, we’re spiralizing our carrots, so you get more carrot in every bite, and all of the carrots don’t fall to the bottom of the plate or bowl (don’t you hate when that happens?!) I love spiralizing carrots in salads for this reason – the gorgeous orange spirals make every bite more exciting.
If you want to prep this ahead of time, just add the lettuce in before you serve and keep the lettuce and the rest of the ingredients separate! Romaine lettuce is your typical chopped salad green, but you can give this a different flair by using a different lettuce, chopped up.
