The Best Barefoot Contessa Salad Recipe

Ina Garten Swears by This 6-Ingredient Salad

Shocker: I'm in love with another recipe by Ina Garten, aka The Barefoot Contessa. This time, it's her sweet and salty, crispy and creamy Cape Cod Chopped Salad, which just so happens to have a five-star rating. Before you turn away at the thought of eating greens, hear me out. It's full of tart apples, dried cranberries, toasted walnuts, blue cheese, and, oh yes, crispy bacon. Perfect for lunch or as an accompaniment to another one of her all-American recipes, like spicy tomato soup with grilled cheese croutons, this arugula salad is so good, you'll forget kale ever existed. The dish is packed with tasty contrasts. The flavors and textures work together to create a salad that definitely isn't healthy but certainly is delicious. Plus, you get to throw the ingredients together as the smell of browning bacon wafts through your kitchen. The elements are brought together by a simple dressing that's absolutely worth making from scratch — after all, wouldn't you do anything to eat a salad that doesn't qualify as a sad desk lunch?
