    Nutritional Info on Palomino Chop Chop Salad

    Hey guys,

    This salad recipe has TONS of cals and I dug in and figured out that it was 2 cups of olive oil...if you look at the recipe, it serves 2, but the dressing looks like it serves 20. Or am I crazy? I can reach out to the chef to update it, but the NI is never going to be right if we keep it as is.

    Thoughts?

    Another option is to make all the dressing ingredients optional. Given the ingredient quantities, esp the egg yolks, it probably is impractical to cut into more than half.

    Or make the salad dressing ingredients a separate recipe.

    I have one like this too, but my dressing is about double the amount needed, so it;'s not so bad a "hit" nutritionally.

    The actual salad ingredients don't look like more than a couple of servings for a main dish salad, but wow! that's a lot of dressing.

    I know! i'll email the chef and ask them if it's ok if I cut it in half, at least.

    It only calls for 1/2 cup dressing for the two servings, which would be twice the standard 2 tbsp each. Would it work if the dressing was posted as a separate recipe?

    I don't see a problem making 1/2 the dressing. I do it all the time. I like a little more tang so I often add more vinegar. Drizzle on the amount you like and save the rest. I am not sure how long the egg portion will last refrigerated. Anyone?

    Let us know what you find out.

    A note could be added in the intro that the recipe makes far more than the amount needed and to store the extra in the fridge for up to a week.
