Chip's Salad

Recipe by deannamcgill

The inspiration of this salad is the house salad at Chipparelli's Restaurant in Little Italy, Baltimore, MD. This recipe is similar, but it's only my best guess (plus a little of my own tastes thrown in) I have put quantities for the oil & vinegar, but honestly I just pour it straight from the bottle... I just keep testing the salad until it tastes good!

As a fellow Marylander, Chipparelli's is a constant, renowned institution in Little Italy, and anyone who has ever visited this restaurant, you can bet your boots they have always ordered this salad. This is pretty darn close to the original, and you should be congratulated for your effort and being able to balance all the tastes of the suburb salad. I am not sure about the garlic right into the salad, it seemed a bit to much garlic, and would probably of put it into the dressing itself. Other then that, absolutely delightful! Thanks for posting!
