Tons of Veggies Chopped Salad

This chopped salad you won’t be able to stop eating. All the colors and flavors of the chopped veggies provide a rainbow of nutrients that support your microbiome, immune system and help to reduce inflammation.

The recipe comes together quickly when you use a food processor. Just be sure to use short pulses so the veggies don’t get too small.

The dressing is olive oil based, which is healthy if you use a good quality olive oil. I recommend the olive oil shops where you can see the date the oil was pressed. Look for a date within six months for quality flavor and benefits.

You could use your favorite dressing as well. Just get these veggies into your body and they will benefit you in multiple ways. This delicious, chopped salad is perfect for picnics and family gatherings. Let me know if you try it!

Prep Time30 minutes
Course: Salad
Cuisine: American
Keyword: broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, peppers, spinach, tomatoes, zucchini


  • food processor


  • 1/2 small cabbage
  • 1/2 head cauliflower
  • 1 stalk of broccoli
  • 2 cups zucchini, rough chopped
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 2 stalks of celery cut lengthwise then crosswise into dice
  • ¼ cup red onion diced
  • 1 red or yellow bell pepper diced
  • 1 tomato diced, seeds removed


  • 1 cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup Bragg’s or coconut aminos
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp cider vinegar
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 Tbsp red onion diced


  • Use a food processor to chop cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini and spinach. Fill processor container with one kind of vegetable and use very quick tapping pulses to chop. If you hold down the button rather than tap, the vegetables will chop too fine. Pour chopped veggies into a large bowl. Repeat.
  • Prepare celery, onion, pepper, and tomato by dicing with a chef knife. Add to the mixing bowl.
  • Blend the dressing ingredients until smooth, pour ½ over chopped veggies, mix to coat and add more if needed to coat all the veggies. Store any leftover dressing in the fridge for 5 days.
  • The dressing can be whisked together instead of blending, but blending creates a creamy dressing, which I prefer, but whisking it together works as well.
