Napa Chopped Salad

If you love antipasti you will love this salad. It is basically antipasti in the form of a salad! You won’t be able to stop eating it! Fresh, crisp, zingingly full of flavor!

I landed in Sacramento and stayed at the Hyatt hotel on the campus of the University of California at Davis.  A very nice hotel BTW!  Smack dab in the middle of our adventure we got to eat at Redd Wood in Yountville.  I don’t know if I was just really hungry or if the food at this restaurant was exceptionally good, but I have been thinking about it practically every waking moment since!

We ate family style which was super fun!  They placed plates full of pasta, pizza, and salads all around the table and we all shared!  It was just how I like to eat, together!

One of the salads we were served, was so amazing that I had to recreate it at home.  I’ve been dreaming of this Chopped Salad!  Do you ever eat out somewhere and then obsess over what you’ve had?  Sometimes it’s not something I want to go to the trouble of making at home, but then other times I just can’t help myself!  This one is pretty easy, just a lot of chopping, obviously, but OH it’s worth it!

I was so busy picking it apart and basically not sharing it and just mowing down that, I didn’t get any pics of the original.  I couldn’t find the exact same beans, and I didn’t make my own red wine vinaigrette I bought a good one and used it instead.

I have a weird family, no one like olives.  Who are these people.  No one would eat it, well my oldest son did, but he picked off the olives.  More for me!  So I pretty much once again took on this salad all by myself, over the course of two days, just for clarification.

I had a similar salad served to me at Redd Wood, in the Napa Valley region of California. It is like antipasti in salad form!
