California Chopped Salad

Panera Bread Recipe

Serves 6

1/4 cup oil packed sun dried tomatoes
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 clove garlic
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh parsley leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

8 ounces romaine, chopped
1 cup chopped English cucumber
2 scallions, finely chopped
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 avocado, pitted, peeled, and chopped
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1/2 cup pitted and halved kalamata olives

To make the vinaigrette, put the tomatoes, vinegar, and garlic in a blender or food processor. Blend or process until relatively smooth, 1 minute. With the machine running, slowly drizzle in the olive oil until the mixture thickens, 1 to 2 minutes. Then add the parsley, salt, and pepper, and process just until the parsley is chopped.

For the salad, layer the ingredients, in the order listed, in a salad bowl or on individual plates. Drizzle on the vinaigrette.
