recipe: simple chopped salad

so we are mostly gearing up for Fall in these parts. I've got big and exciting plans both for the shop and in the kitchen. (more on both of these things soon!) But for now, I thought I would share one last summer recipe. This chopped salad has been a staple in our house these past summer months. I've made it almost every time we've had people over, or needed to bring a dish to an event, or just felt like a delicious and simple meal. 

We first made this together one evening when trying to eat up our leftovers before going away for a few days. Since then we've added to and changed it, perfecting it to what it is now. 

Warning: it takes quite awhile to chop up everything for this salad. Best to enlist a few kitchen helpers if you can! 


  • chopped raw vegetables- basically anything you have in your fridge will work. We most commonly use cucumber, carrots, broccoli, red or spring onions, red peppers and tomatoes.
  • feta
  • chick peas
  • fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • olive oil
  • mint & parsley
  • salt & pepper. 


it's pretty simple. Just chop all your veggies super small. Then add your chick peas, chopped herbs and crumbled feta. Next add olive oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. You can play around with the amounts to find what you like best!

I find that this salad tastes better once it's sat in the fridge for a few hours. It's so incredibly low maintenance- the perfect dish to bring to an end of summer picnic or party! Enjoy!
