What a fantastic barbecue side: It's juicy, crunchy, and bright enough to provide delicious relief even from your richest dishes, and substantial enough to stand in for starchy sides like potatoes. I add a ton of marjoram and dill, but chives and basil taste amazing, too.

Recipe Ingredients for Chopped Salad

1/2 cup finely chopped red onions
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus additional as needed
2 teaspoons ground black pepper, plus additional as needed
8 cups iceburg lettuce, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 red bell Peppers , cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 cup kalamata olives, such as Cerignola, halved
1 cup green beans, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup English cucumber, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 tablespoons fresh marjoram leaves
1/4 cup parsley leaves
1/4 cup dill, large stems removed

Recipe Directions for Chopped Salad

  1. 1. In a small bowl, combine the onions, water, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Let sit at room temperature for 5 minutes to allow the flavors to develop.

  2. Add 1/2 cup of the oil to the vinegar mixture. Add additional to taste.

  3. 2. In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, roasted peppers, olives, haricots verts, cucumber, and herbs. Toss with enough dressing to coat, and season to taste with additional salt and pepper. Serve any remaining dressing on the side.
