Portion what you want to eat immediately into a separate bowl and pour some vinaigrette over the top. Which when cooked makes 4 cups. Pea Salad– Little green gems lend beautiful color and texture to this delicious creamy salad. I didn’t make the salad yet, but I did make the dressing for a cabbage-chicken salad and it is a winner of a dressing – VERY good.

Ditalini is a small, open-ended, tube shape pasta. You should be able to find it in the pasta aisle of any grocery store. If you absolutely can not find it, you can replace with mini shell pasta or even elbow macaroni. Both of those shapes will change the texture of the salad slightly but not the taste. Whisk all dressing ingredients together until they’re emulsified .
The overall taste of this salad and the dressing, on the whole, is a wonderful copycat version of the original recipe. I have made this several times now. I love the dressing and salad. I love that all your salad recipes are tried and true. It’s also fun if you can spill the rest of the ditalini all over. For the dressing, you’ll combine white wine vinegar, olive oil, garlic, honey, oregano, salt and pepper.
Fyi…their chopped salad has chopped purple onions and there is no red cabbage in their salad. White balsamic can be found right next to the regular balsamic vinegar at the store. In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk your olive oil, red wine vinegar, Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper. I like to double the salad dressing ingredients. The dressing is really easy to make and it’s wonderful to have on hand to use throughout the week. Oh, did I mention the dressing????
Combine romaine, iceberg, red cabbage, tomatoes, and green onions in a large salad bowl. First, your veggies should be ultra fresh, since they’re the foundation of the dish. That sad, limp lettuce hanging out in your crisper drawer has no place here! Second, the pasta shape is very important.
I believe originally, this copycat recipe for this Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette , was published in the Chicago Sun-Times. Now I must say, the dressing that this recipe makes doesn’t look like the dressing from Portillo’s restaurant. Portillo’s dressing is white in color and possibly a little thicker. Really the differences seem pretty dang small in my estimation.
