Copycat Portillos Chopped Salad

I love love love this salad. Growing up in Chicago most people know of Portillos. My two absolute favorites are the Italian Beef sandwich their Chopped Salad. Oh my is beyond delicious! I love love love it! Okay, I need to stop now or I am going to drool all over my keyboard. Ha! Last year I tried to re-create it at home and it was a hit. I've been craving it again lately so this is what I ended up making for dinner tonight.

Copycat Portillos Chopped Salad

1 bag sliced red cabbage (I left this out since I don't care for it)
1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced
3 tomatoes, seeded and diced
