Diced base of green pepper / Small chunks of half a tomato / two celery stalks, chopped / 3 Tbs diced red onion / small handful of chopped endive / half a chopped avocado / one small cuke, peeled and chopped / chopped herb (cilantro or parsley).
Tasty with all kinds of dressings but my favorite is a tangy vinaigrette.
This is a single serving.

Great opportunity opened up last night: got a space at a writing retreat. I had moved on it late. It was full. Forgot about it. And then: ta da! I was first on the waiting list and a spot is mine!
I’ll be taking about a week-long break here.
Congrats, Dee! have a wonderful, productive respite. Is Finn going with you?
No to Finn.
We’ll hire extra dog walks for Monday and Wednesday. We already have a walker who comes on tuesdays.
poor Finn 😉 lucky Dee! awesomeness.
Finn doesn’t really suffer around here, don’t you worry!
Oh I am totally thrilled for you .. I know you’ll love! Thanks for the recipe .. Looks delicious!
Thank you, Tina. Will let you all know how it goes! I made my salad with cilantro, but it’d be just as yummy with parsley — I know a lot of people don’t like cilantro.
A retreat to explore what you love. So happy you can rest in creating!
Thank you, Patty. The retreat is being held up in the hills west of Northampton, where I lived while going to UMass. I really love it out there. Definitely miss those hills!
Hi Dee– I just found your blog– I love a chopped salad bowl–mine starts with apple, celery, carrot and then whatever I have–radishes, pecans, pumpkin seeds. Now that I have some cucumber in the garden–I will see if I like that texture as well.
Hi Joanne. Welcome! Sorry for this reply’s delay. As mentioned I was away. A little unplugged. You remind me to include apples! Pumpkin seeds! I have both on hand. Going in tonight’s bowl. Thanks.
congratulations! wishing you an inspiring week with lots of joyous interludes amongst equally motivated writers
I too love the lettuce free salads….we eat salad every day!
Thank you Saskia. Home now. It was very very hot but the group was wonderful and I got to listen to some pretty amazing writing.
Thanks for this … I’ve been so antsy with all the recent food-borne illness news. What a simple solution!
Yeah. Romaine ban was tough!
