Italian Mixed Green and Olive Salad

As stated, we eat a lot of salads here.  Some a fairly complex like Shrimp Remoulade. This one is simple.

Serves 2:


  • 1 head of Romaine lettuce or your favorite lettuce, chopped
  • 1 celery stalk chopped
  • 2 scallions chopped (aka green onions or scallions)
  • Smoked Gouda cheese, cut into cubes
  • 2 slices of salami, cut into cubes
  • 8 black olive, pitted and sliced
  • 8 green olives, pitted and sliced
  • 8 kalamata olives, pitted and sliced
  • 4 marinated artichoke hearts, cut in half

Drizzle with olive oil.  Some folks like to use a vinaigrette but in this case the olives and the marinated artichoke adds the vinegar flavor.  All that is needed is olive oil, which I pour lightly on top.

I always leave salad at room temperature before eating.
