chopped salad w salami

Sometimes I search my fridge and cupboards and make a meal out of what I find. That’s how I came up with this chopped salad on a Saturday afternoon, that the kids loved.

Use the ingredients you may have on hand and like. My goal is to get as many plant based foods in the meal as possible.

What You’ll Need

tomatoes, a dozen cherry, chopped, or 2-3 regular, chopped

beans, canned cannelloni, one 16 oz can

green pepper, 1 chopped

yellow pepper, 1 chopped

roasted red pepper, 1, chopped

red onion, 1/2, chopped

salami (optional) 1/4 cup (small handful), I buy nitrate free salami

thyme, 2 sprigs, 1/2 tablespoon (1 teaspoon dried)

oregano, 1/2 tablespoon fresh, chopped, (1 teaspoon dried)

basil, 1/2 tablespoon fresh, chopped, (1 teaspoon dried)

olive oil, extra virgin, drizzle

balsamic vinegar, drizzle

sea salt and pepper to taste

To Prepare

  1. Chop all ingredients.  Place in a salad bowl, drizzle with all oil and vinegar, and season with salt and pepper. Bon Appetit!
