I'd like my submarine sandwich, salad style, please!

All the sandwich places are trying to be healthier by offering salads on their menus now. Here is a great recipe that is basically a chef salad tweaked to be reminiscent of a sub sandwich.

Gather your 'submarine' sandwich makings...

Find a jar and place in your salad dressing ingredients....Shake....

Shake it baby, until mixed and pour on your prepared salad....

Submarine Salad

Romaine Lettuce Head
2 hard rolls, cubed and slightly toasted in oven with olive oil if desired
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/2 c. shredded Swiss Cheese
1 medium tomato, chopped
2 ounces each of ham, turkey, salami
1/2 c. sliced pepperoni
1/3 c. olive oil
2 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp pepper
hot pepper rings to garnish (optional)

Combine the lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese, ham, turkey, salami, pepperoni in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredient for the dressing. Mix well. Add your toasted roll cubs, toss in salad. Pour dressing over salad toss to coat. Serve immediately.

ALSO!!!....since we had a bit of this leftover the next day....I picked out a few of the remaining toasted roll cubes and just put the rest of the salad between come ciabiatta bread for picnic sandwiches. Awesome!

I absolutely love to make my own salad dressings. And why not ? They're extremely simple to make, and I usually have the ingredients on hand. Our family never has the bottled salad dressings. They're full of preservations and artificial flavorings. Why buy a bottle that has no nutritional value when you can easily and economically make your own at home ?
