Crisp lettuce, cubed mozzarella, and diced salami in a red wine vinaigrette. So colorful, so vibrant, and so so good!
Salad for dinner? Yes, please!
This salad is anything but boring here. Loaded with crisp romaine and radicchio lettuce, cubed mozzarella, dry Italian salami and a vibrant red wine vinaigrette, this salad will knock your socks off.
The homemade dressing is absolutely key here. The ingredient list is short too with just a few pantry staples – extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, Dijon, garlic, oregano and crushed red pepper flakes (for a little bit of heat, if desired).
And the best part? Prep time is kept to a minimum as there is zero cooking involved and everything can be diced/prepped/assembled beforehand. Just be sure to toss your salad right before serving for maximum freshness. And don’t forget to add your finishing touches with freshly shaved Parm!
