I can’t remember the last time I purchased pepperoni; I wasn’t even sure where to look for it in the store. And no, sliced turkey pepperoni isn’t exactly a natural food, but it was a tasty treat in this salad! The original recipe is from Green Lite Bites, although I changed up the vegetables, and used green leaf lettuce and Parmesan cheese. It’s the dressing that I think is really unique, it tastes just like pizza sauce with a mix of olive oil, tomato paste, balsamic vinegar, and water.

I brought it to work as a salad with the dressing on the side, shown here, and also threw it into a wrap which was pretty good too. Maybe you can satisfy your next pizza craving with a salad?

  1. This looks very good and I am impressed that you incorporated Pepperoni into a salad. However, please note that salad could never replace a desire for pizza!!

  2. KC,
    I love pizza, I love salad and I love anything with sauce. 90% of the time I put my salad on the same plate as my pasta so it can mix with the sauce. I was going to make salad today so I will try the dressing but opt out of the pepperoni since it's Friday.

  3. I'm a big fan of "deconstructed" junk foods like this. I used to have an issue with deep fried chicken fingers…drooooool…but have managed to overcome the need for them by combining diced chicken with a big bowl of romaine and a good homemade honey mustard dressing. It's amazing how cravings can be beaten in a healthy way! 🙂

  4. So yummy! I wish I had checked from home, although, I did make some spaghetti squash topped w/ sauce and sprinkled parm cheese. All thanks to you! -Lee
