Jennifer Fisher's NYC X LA Chopped Salad


1 bag (3 heads) of organic romaine lettuce, finely chopped
1 head of organic iceberg lettuce, finely chopped
12 slices of organic soppressata, finely chopped
1 cup organic mozzarella, freshly grated
1/4 cup pimiento peppers, finely chopped
JF Universal Salt, to taste
fresh cracked black pepper
JF Simple Mustard Vinaigrette

optional Add Ins:
garbanzo beans, marinate them in the JF Simple Mustard Vinaigrette
diced avocado
diced english cucumber
diced red or white onion
diced pepperoncini
diced tomato
chopped bacon
chopped turkey
chopped grilled chicken

JF Simple Mustard Vinaigrette:
1/4 cup safflower oil
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 clove of garlic, finely minced
1 tsp dijon mustard
pinch of JF Spicy Salt or JF Universal Salt 
fresh cracked black pepper, to taste

Note: All oils and vinegars are interchangeable to make this salad dressing your own. Try it with olive oil, safflower oil, or avocado oil. Use red wine vinegar, white wine vinegar, or champagne vinegar. 

To make the JF Simple Mustard Vinaigrette: Whisk all ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl. Season with JF Spicy Salt or JF Universal Salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste.


After prepping all the ingredients, Jennifer likes to let everyone build their own bowls. Begin with a base of lettuce then add cheese, soppressata, pimiento peppers (you just want small bits of red throughout, not too much pimiento). Toss this together and then add JF Simple Mustard Vinaigrette. The key is getting the ratio correct. Minimal dressing seasoned with fresh cracked black pepper and JF Universal Salt is the best. Simply pour JF Simple Mustard Vinaigrette over one can of drained beans and add a very generous spoonful of JF Universal Salt and fresh cracked black pepper. Refrigerate them in an airtight container. There is no strict ‘recipe’ here just wing it. Create your own version. The key is chopping the lettuce very fine and all the components that go into it. They should all be roughly the same size. A sharp knife is also a key ingredient to make it easier. Try this salad on top of a pizza crust.
