Chopped Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette


This crunchy, colorful salad makes for a satisfying lunch that brings the nutrition. Meat lovers can swap chopped grilled chicken or turkey deli for the chickpeas and still keep things on the light side.

YIELD 4 servings
PREP TIME 15 minutes

For the vinaigrette:
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons habanero-infused white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
½ cup quality olive oil
½ cup safflower oil
Sea salt and red pepper flakes to taste

For the salad:
½ cup chopped red onions
½ cup chickpeas
½ cup chopped green beans
½ cup chopped red bell peppers
½ cup corn (fresh or frozen)
½ cup sliced hearts of palm
1 cup baby spinach
Crumbled goat cheese to taste

1. Make the vinaigrette: Whisk together all the ingredients
in a bowl, slowly streaming in the oils to create an emulsion.
2. Add ¼ dressing (or to taste) to 4 Mason jars. Layer the
salad ingredients on top, starting with the red onions and
ending with the cheese.
