Chopped Salad Taste Test
Happy Foodie Friday! These recipes come courtesy of Penny and Eleazar Martinez.
Each of our Taste Test Reviews comes with the original recipe and the tester's notes/changes listed with the ingredient list in blue. We hope you enjoy!
This savory salad is zesty and flavorful. However, as you are preparing the dish I recommend tasting each individual ingredient. I did not taste my onion before tossing the salad and it was more pungent than usual, leaving me picking through my salad to remove some of the spicy vegetable. As long as you taste as you go and adjust your ingredients a bit accordingly, you will be left with a tasty dish!
