    Confetti Chopped Salad

    When we first met, Thomas used to make fun of me for always using the phrase “little tiny.”

    A “little tiny” nap.

    A “little tiny” sip.

    A “little tiny” pinch of salt.

    I think I get it from my mom Confetti Chopped Salad

    So when I was making this salad, which features a bunch of finely diced vegetables, I almost named it a “little tiny” salad. Not for its size but for its contents.

    I had a lightbulb moment about vegetables recently. I often chop them big because it’s easier and requires less precision on the cutting board. But I actually prefer my vegetables to be finely diced! Sometimes biting into a giant piece of raw broccoli or a huge piece of cucumber can make me cringe a little, I think mostly related to the texture. But when finely diced, I love almost anything (ALMOST anything – finely diced onions are the worst!)

    So the idea for this salad was to combine a bunch of little tiny vegetables into a superfood medley. Aka: vegetable confetti!

    Yes, turning these whole veggies into tiny cubes did take me a lot longer, BUT how many times have you heard someone say that they find chopping vegetables sort of soothing? Turn on some music or a podcast, and it will be soothing. And the best news: the corn and navy beans are little tiny already 🙂

    I steamed the sweet potatoes and broccoli in the microwave until both were tender, about 3-4 minutes for the taters and half that for the broccoli. Splash a little water on the bottom to help them steam. You could keep the broccoli raw too if you want!

    Two finishing touches amp up the flavor: a few handfuls of freshly chopped herbs (I used parsley and mint from my garden) and a basic white wine vinegar dressing.

    Enjoy this salad on its own or as a side dish. It will keep in your fridge for a few days, so it’s great for prep day! I had it with eggs on top and as a side to quiche for lunch.
