Easy Italian Chopped Salad Recipe

I have been living off of salads lately. Not because of a diet change, more so due to the insane heat that’s hitting our city. It is too hot to turn on the oven or even think about stove top dinners. Luckily for me, I found the perfect combination of ingredients that is packed with veggies, protein, and flavor. That means it qualifies as a family meal. Best of all? It is kid AND husband approved!

Getting those two to eat a salad is near impossible, but the combination of pepperoni, ham, and diced pepperoncini peppers has them in love with this easy salad recipe
