Swap a Recipe Saturday! Pizza Salad
Found this recipe that I can't wait to try on familyfun.com. Looks absolutely delish!!
Cheese, pepperoni, olives, and other classic pizza toppings make this flavorful salad a sure hit. To complete the illusion, serve it with soft breadsticks.
1 cup diced fresh mozzarella
1/3 cup thin pepperoni slices, quartered
1 cup halved grape tomatoes
1/2 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
3/4 cup diced green bell pepper
1 (2.25 ounce) can sliced olives, drained
Small head of leafy lettuce
1/2 cup salad croutons
1/3 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons Parmesan
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Pinch of sugar
Combine all the dressing ingredients in a large bowl and whisk the mixture well.
Add the mozzarella, pepperoni, tomatoes, mushrooms, bell pepper, and olives to the bowl and toss the mixture to distribute the dressing.
Serve the salad on a bed of lettuce and top it with croutons just before eating. Serves 6.
