From the Test Kitchen

Iceberg lettuce is perfect for adding extra crunch to a chopped salad like this one. After all, the fun of a chopped salad is the mixing of different textures and flavors all in a single bite. To balance the crunch, we added sweet potato for its creaminess. The slightly sweeter, somewhat floral Meyer lemon helps create a tangy dressing to tie it all together.
