Portillos Chopped Salad Copycat Recipe

The Best Portillos Chopped Salad Copycat Recipe
Portillos Chopped Salad Copycat Recipe 
I absolutely love Portillo's Chopped Salad and was hoping to find a copycat recipe so that I could make it at home.  I was able to nail the salad but was only able to find one recipe for the house salad dressing and sadly in my opinion, it tasted nothing like the original.  The recipe itself was very good so I decided to go ahead and post it for those who have never had the original Potillo's chopped salad and therefor have no expectations going into it.   For those of you who have had it, proceed with caution because you will more than likely be disappointed.  

Portillos Chopped Salad Ingredients:
  • 4 cups of cooked Ditalini pasta
  • 3 cups of chopped romaine lettuce
  • 3 cups of chopped iceberg lettuce
  • 2 cups of chopped red cabbage
  • 1 tomatoes diced
  • 1 cup of chopped green onions
  • 1 cup of crispy bacon chopped
  • 4 ounces of gorgonzola cheese 

  1. Cook pasta according to package, drain, rinse. 
  2. Cook bacon until crisp. 
  3. Mix lettuce, cabbage, green onions, bacon and gorgonzola cheese in a large bowl.
  4. Serve with dressing, recipe below. 
Portillos Chopped Salad Dressing Ingredients:

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender EXCEPT the olive oil. Turn the blender on low while slowly pouring the oil until the mixture is emulsified and blended.
