The Ivy Chopped Salad Recipe

Do you notice that as soon as summer starts to heat up people are eating more cold soups and salads? I love the summer because it means linen pants and tee shirts. Summer is about taking it easy and taking it slow. Salads are an easy way to eat healthy and keep the kitchen cool. One of my favorite salads is The Ivy chopped salad. The Ivy chopped salad is served at The Ivy Restaurant on the famed celebrity filled Robertson Boulevard. Celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Brad Pitt, and many others are often seen at this restaurant. If you do not live in LA or just want to make this recipe at home on your own.

Here is a recipe inspired by the Ivy Chopped Salad.

  • 1 head green leaf lettuce, finely chopped
  • 3 Roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 3 ears corn, grilled then remove the kernels
  • 1 large bunch asparagus, grilled then chopped
  • 2 bunches green onions, grilled then chopped
  • 3 medium zucchini, grilled then chopped
  • 2 avocados, diced

  • Dressing:
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinaigrette
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp crushed basil
  • 1/2 tsp crushed oregano

  1. Make the dressing first and put in the fridge.
  2. Brush the zucchini, asparagus, corn, and green onions with olive oil, use salt and pepper to taste and grill.
  3. Chop all your grilled vegetables and mix with avocado, lettuce, and tomatoes.
