Recipe: Italian Chopped Salad with House Dressing

| Recipe Index

This Italian Chopped Salad recipe is based on the chopped salad from Portillo’s in Chicago... so all you Chi-Towners, get ready for some fun! For those of you unfamiliar with Portillo's, this salad is pretty substantial, thanks to the ditalini pasta and bacon. The homemade tangy, Italian dressing coats the crunchy, crisp lettuce leaves for the perfect balance of salty, savory. Don't forget about the green onions! Every little bit counts when it comes to this tasty and healthy salad.
