Last week, we ate at a local pizza place. It was so good! We got the Thai chicken pizza that had curry in the sauce and basil on top. It also had zucchini and eggplant, two of my favorite things. It was spicy HOT! But it was still yummy. And the crust was to die for.
Then we shared a chopped salad. I don't have a photo of the original. But when we both went crazy for it, I decided to make my own copycat version. When I made the salad dressing, I just started dumping stuff in, so these measurements are approximate. Just mix and taste and adjust.
Missy's Copycat Chopped Salad
Cubed provolone cheese
Cubed hard salami (I got this and the cheese in the deli)
red onion--thinly sliced
Red wine vinegar dressing:
2-3 Tbs. red wine vinegar
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
dash of lemon juice
dash of honey
salt and pepper
Mix the vinegar, honey, and lemon juice. Then whisk in the olive oil to emulsify it. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Toss the dressing with the greens. Plate.
Then top with the other ingredients. This is my daughter's favorite part--the banana peppers. Mine is the olives. Or the cheese. Or, goodness, I don't think I can choose one!
Here's the finished product! It was delicious and almost like the restaurant! (Pardon the finger in the photos. I was drooling over the salad and got careless.) :)
