Italian Sub Salad
Recipe type: Salads & Dressings
Serves: 4
Healthier version of an Italian sub
  • 1 (16 ounce) jar giardiniera (pickled vegetables)
  • ½ cup jarred sweet and hot salad peppers or Peppadew peppers
  • 2 ounces turkey pepperoni, cut into thin strips
  • 1 ounce Genoa salami, cut into thin strips
  • 2 ounces prosciutto, cut into thin strips
  • 2 ounces smoked provolone cheese, cut into thin strips
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¾ large head of romaine lettuce, shredded
  • 1 cup fat-free croutons (I like the garlic Caesar ones)
  • freshly ground black pepper
  1. Drain giardiniera, reserving 2 tablespoons of brine.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together the giardiniera, peppers, pepperoni, salami, prosciutto and provolone. Drizzle with olive oil and giardiniera brine and toss again. Set aside for about 20 minutes to let flavors combine.
  3. Add romaine and croutons to giardiniera mixture and toss. Season with pepper and serve immediately.
This salad is a good source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, and Folate. It is also high in Sodium. See tips above for reducing the amount of Sodium in the salad if you are concerned.
