Leah’s Crunchy Chopped Salad

When Leah read the recent blog post on her chocolate chip cookies, she felt inspired to share some new salad recipes.  After all, she felt it necessary to validate her title as “Salad Queen”.

One evening, on the night before I planned to clean out the refrigerator and then restock my fruits and vegetables, Leah created this chopped salad with the slim pickings in our fridge.

This salad is the perfect combination of crunchy and smooth.  It boasts vegetables of all colors and textures.  She savored every bite and I’m sure that you will, too.

Here’s to Leah Primavera!



1-2 cups red cabbage, shredded
3-4 stalks celery, sliced
2-3 green scallions, sliced
1-2 red peppers, cut in chunks
1 ripe avocado
handful of shelled roasted sunflower seeds

2 tablespoons Simply the Best Caesar Dressing
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1 teaspoon sesame seeds



Layer vegetables and sunflower seeds in order of ingredients listed above.  Drizzle Caesar Dressing and balsamic vinegar.  Gently toss.   Sprinkle sunflower and sesame seeds on top.






  1. Thank you for this delicious salad! Since I’m on a low carb diet, I’m always looking for different variations of salads! This definitely fits the bill!
