Recipe Of The Day: Chopped Salad

So much better when homemade.

Chopped salads are not something to be intimidated by. Sure, you don't normally make them at home.

And they're not when you make them at home.

It's loaded with rich ingredients like goat cheese and almonds that are nicely paired next to quick-pickled bell peppers.
