crunchy rainbow chopped salad

This salad is so super easy, and because it's hearty, it actually holds up well in the fridge (even with dressing), so you can make it ahead of time, or enjoy any leftovers the next day.

crunchy rainbow chopped salad
(makes 4 very generous servings)

1 tub of Trader Joe's Healthy 8 chopped veggie mix (found in the produce section, by the bagged salads)
1/2 cup Trader Joe's Tzatziki sauce*
champagne or white wine vinegar, to taste
freshly ground pepper

Combine everything in a mixing bowl. Add more yogurt sauce or vinegar until you reach the desired amount of dressing, and your desired level of zestiness and creaminess. This salad is hearty and will hold up for 2-3 days in the fridge, so enjoy those leftovers. If you have any!

* I happened to have a partial tub of Tzatziki Sauce on hand, but or you can simply use Greek Yogurt, like Fage 0% instead for the creamy portion of the dressing.

  1. A few of you have emailed me, asking me what's in the "Healthy 8 chopped veggie mix, since you're not near a Trader Joe's. It is a tub of chopped:
    broccoli (the spear part)
    carrots
    green cabbage
    red cabbage
    jicama
    green bell pepper
    radish
    celery
    Hope this helps you recreate it at home. Enjoy!!
