It’s low-carb (Keto), gluten-free and easy to whip up! I make this so often, especially when I don’t plan what I am going to have for lunch that I thought I would share. This version is made with Genoa salami, mozzarella, roasted red peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuce topped with oil and red vinegar.

Since I usually whip this up with the ingredients I have on hand, my salad looks different each time I make it, here are some variations I usually make.

Variations:

  • Swap the salami with sopressata or proscuitto
  • Swap some of the Romaine lettuce with radicchio or butter lettuce
  • Replace the salami with canned chickpeas to make it vegetarian
  • Also great with hard boiled eggs
  • Add olives
  • Add pepperoncini
