Our Chop Chop Salad/Relish is SOOOO refreshing and tasty, and also a great way to get your fill of veggies quickly and with little prep time. And the best part? You can really add any ingredients, herbs, and seasonings you have on hand, so make it your own!
What you’ll need from the kitchen:
A few small bowls or jars for keeping your chopped ingredients separated
Another larger serving bowl or Mason Jar for mixing all of the ingredients together
Ingredients (serves 4):
4 Cucumbers (Mini are best, lightly peeled if you want, or use only 2 English Cucumbers)
1 Package Grape Tomatoes
1 Bunch Radishes, Onions, Scallions, or Chives
1 Serrano, Jalapeno, or Anaheim Pepper
3-4 Sprigs of Mint
1 Lemon or Lime Juice (fresh-squeezed is best)
1 Tbls Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tsp Any type of lighter vinegar (aka, not balsamic), White Balsamic, White Wine Vinegar, Apple Cider Vinegar or similar
Sea Salt & Pepper to taste
1 Splash of Sparkling Water (plain flavor is best, but a citrus blend is great, too)
Steps for Preparation:
Finely chop the cucumbers, tomatoes, radishes (or other), pepper, keeping each ingredient separate.
In your large bowl, add all chopped ingredients together.
Using scissors, finely chop mint leaves from their stem (or use Herb Scissors for fasting chopping) on top of the vegetable mix.
Add lemon or lime juice, E.V. Olive Oil, Vinegar, Sea Salt & Pepper, and Sparkling Water into the bowl.
Lightly toss with your hands or a spoon to coat all ingredients with the vinaigrette.
Serve chilled or store in a jar for more of a pickled/relish taste.
