Herb-tastic Chopped Salad
Herbs are a fantastic addition to any cook’s repertoire. In fact, Anthony Bourdain once said that if you want to instantly improve your cooking, just add some fresh herbs.
But what do you do with them when you have too much? The answer: make an herb-tastic chopped salad!
As an added bonus, this is a great way to practice our knife skills.
This mission is inspired by the ubiquitous Middle Eastern salad of tomatoes, cucumbers, and parsley. But we can take it to the next level by experimenting with different herbs and veggies. Just use what you have available—it will all be good as long as it’s fresh!
Some herbs you can try are:
- parsley (the flat-leaf kind has more flavor than the curly kind)
Combine that with any/all of the following:
- bell pepper
- red onion
... and you have yourself a cool, refreshing side, equally suited to the hot desert or a blazing July heat wave.
