Low Carb Italian Chopped Salad

I love Italian sub sandwiches, but I dont really love all the fat and carbs, but you can turn almost any sandwich into a delicious salad? Here's my take on an Italian chopped salad.

For the Dressing:
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • Lots of pepper
  • Salt
Put all ingredients in food processor and blend. Chill for 30 minutes.

For the salad:
  • Romaine or iceberg lettuce
  • Turkey pepperoni, fat free ham and hard salami
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Red onions
  • 2 slices mozzarella cheese
Chop up lettuce into small bite size pieces. Chop desired amount of other ingredients and toss all of it lightly in the dressing. Serve immediately!
