I love a big Italian salad! Crisp romaine, salty salami and cheese, briney pepperoncini, and toasty garlic breadcrumbs. YUM!


Units Scale

Big Yummy Italian Salad

  • 34 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1215 pieces salami, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup cubed cheese like Provolone
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup DeLallo Sliced Mild Pepperoncini
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion

Golden Crispy Garlic Panko

No-Recipe Italian Dressing:


  1. Prep Salad Stuff: Chop all your salad veggies, meat, cheese, etc.
  2. Make Golden Crispy Garlic Panko: Mix panko, oil, and garlic powder in a bowl. Microwave for 1 minute, stir, and microwave again for 20-40 seconds until it’s nice and golden. (It’ll be hot! Don’t taste it yet.) Season with salt.
  3. Toss with No-Recipe Dressing: Add all your salad stuff to a large bowl. Drizzle with oil, pepperoncini brine, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Toss to combine, taste, adjust, you know the drill. Finish by tossing those golden panko crispies in there! YUM!
