There used to be a cozy little restaurant in Bel Air, California, that was within a block of where we stayed one year. The food was excellent and the ambiance was relaxing.
My daughter Jen is a good friend of the former owner. She lived nearby while she was living in Los Angeles. When he decided to sell the restaurant she begged him to get the chef’s recipe for this chopped salad.
The combination of ingredients is brilliant…the crunch of the celery and carrots, the peppery radicchio, that burst of flavor from the corn and the garbanzo beans. Toss in some mixed greens and you’ve got yourself a satisfying meal!
I love a chopped salad. You’re gonna love this one.
