I was craving this particular salad this week. Maybe it’s because I’m tired of roasted root vegetables and feel the need for a salad. Now mind you, this salad isn’t winning any awards for leafy greens or low calorie status. This salad tastes just like an Italian sub, minus the bread. I think what triggered the memory of this salad was the head of iceberg lettuce I’ve been buying every week. My son likes the crunch of iceberg, and so do I. This is a simplified version of Smitten Kitchen’s “Nancy’s Chopped Salad”. I omitted the red onion, radicchio and chickpeas, but kept the herby garlic olive oil and red wine vinegar dressing. The salami and provolone were a nice splurge.
Gently fold the provolone, salami, pepperoncini into the dressing one at a time. Gently add the tomatoes and lettuce. Toss to combine everything and serve.
