    Chopped salads had their hey day in the era of the Brown Derby, with its famous Cobb Salad, but chopped salads are undergoing a resaissance. I had this salad at a local restaurant and have put together my version. It's not from Spain, but has some imported Spanish ingredients such as piquillo peppers (use roasted red peppers if not available) and Idiazabal cheese, a Spanish sheep's milk cheese (probably not in the computer so I've substituted mozarella). The charm of a chopped salad is that you get a bit of all the ingredients in each mouthful.

Shitake mushrooms are an especially good substitute.

Some cooking notes: use the standard head cabbage, which is the type grown in Tibet. As for the spicing used in this recipe, according to the Tibetan chef at the Tibet Nepal House (our favorite Himalayan restaurant), Tibetan cuisine is the least spiced of the Himalayan cuisines. If one wishes to add seasonings, some that are common to Himalayan cuisine include - black and white cardamom, Jimbu, garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, nutmeg, cinnamon, Ajwain, star anis, Timboor, chili, turmeric, saffron, sesame seed and mustard seed.

I suggest making the Brown Sauce first, since it's used here as an ingredient for the Mushroom Sauce. However, it can also be used as a stand alone sauce.
