When the weather starts getting warmer I tend to make more salads for dinner and I do love a good chopped salad! Unfortunately, the weather isn't as great as I had hoped for grilling so I decided to make a baked version of this family favorite. Serve this salad with a nice crusty French bread and dinner is served!
