MONDAY RECIPE POST - ITALIAN CHOPPED SALAD

Looking for a main course salad I found this one at Skinnytaste.  To see all the info its host Gina shares, you will find it at this link.


Italian Choped Salad - 2 servings at 271 calories per serving.  

Change or add vegetables (or meat) to suit your own taste.  Of course the calorie count will change with the adjustments.

4 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1/2 cup peeled English cucumber, cubed
1/2 cup halved cherry tomatoes
Sliced red onion
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar
Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
1/2  roasted red pepper (in water), chopped
1 ounce genoa salami, sliced
6 tablespoons shredded part skim mozzarella

Toss the lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion with oil and vinegar.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Top with roasted red pepper, salami and mozzarella.

Serve and enjoy!

A very nice salad, thank you Gina!   We added sliced radishes, and as we have leftovers for tonight I am adding sliced garlic stuffed green olives.
