Portillo's Copycat Chopped Salad
I love love love this salad. Growing up in Chicago most people know of Portillos. My two absolute favorites are the Italian Beef sandwich their Chopped Salad. Oh my word....it is beyond delicious! Now that the holidays are over I need to de-tox from all the indulging I did. Last year I made this salad and it was a hit. It makes the perfect lunch or light dinner!
