From the Test Kitchen

Chopped salads have recently been added to the list of food crazes to sweep the nation in recent years. There’s a reason why they’re so popular—they feature small bites of lots of fresh, tasty ingredients! This one is a nod to Mexican cuisine where radishes and corn add crunch, and queso fresco, a mild, unaged cheese adds a touch of salty creaminess.
