Easy Chopped Salad

By Marilyn Markel for Island Eye News 

As we embark on the New Year it’s customary to seek healthy eating options. 

This is just an example of a zesty chopped salad where many of the ingredients don’t need to be chopped.

 A chopped salad can be a combination of any ingredients that you enjoy eating so substitutions are encouraged.  Easy to make a big batch on Sunday and have several on-the-go lunches during the week.

Ingredients

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

 ¼ cucumber, halved and thinly sliced

1 red, yellow or orange bell pepper, diced

3 radishes halved and very thinly sliced

10 grape tomatoes halved or quartered

1 cup frozen peas, thawed

1 cup frozen corn, thawed

8 green olives, sliced

8 kalamato olives, sliced

2 pepperoncini peppers, thinly sliced

Small cubes sharp cheddar cheese, to taste

1 Tbsp pepperoncini juice

1 Tbsp olive oil

salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir to mix.
