Simple Chopped Salad

  • Author: Chantelle Ellem
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4


2 baby cos lettuce, chopped
1 shallot, sliced thinly
2 lemons, zested and juiced
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
A pinch of chili flakes, or more
1 generous handful of grated Parmesan cheese (around 1 cup)
Salt and pepper, to taste


1. Place the lettuce, grated parmesan, chilli flakes, and lemon zest in a large salad bowl. Toss to combine.

2. In a jar, place the oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper. Place the lid on, and shake to combine. Pour over the salad, and gently toss. Serve immediately.


Don’t dress the salad until you’re ready to serve. The lettuce is delicate and it will drown in the dressing if you pour too early. It’s best eaten straight away.
