Salami Chopped Salad

Salami chopped salad #WMTMoms

“Chop, chop, chop”…  I’m singing the noise of the knife hitting the cutting board that I use for my chopped salad.  This repetitious chopping sounds like a symphony to my ears knowing a lovely salad will be stacked up high in a bowl as soon as I get it all sliced, diced, and slivered.  I’ve come to crave my salami chopped salad more then I want to admit and thus far have only made it for my immediate family.  I think it’s time to spread the lettuce wealth around and unleash it on my blog.

As you know Labor day is around the corner, and everyone I know is getting their last of the Summer Ya-ya’s out, me included!  When my family potluck sheet stumbled upon me and I was forced to pick a dish to bring way in advance, I signed up for my chopped salad. I know it can be severed as a great side with anything else that is being served, or it works well as a little appetizer, or it has enough star power to steal the whole show. Yes, I’m still talking about the salami chopped salad.  I have even made a vegetarian version for my Mom a few times.

So there you have it folks, I’m taking a chopped salad to my family Labor day potluck. Check out the recipe, you may want to chop some salad yourself.

Here’s the best part:  I can get everything I need for my most spectacular salad at Walmart. They got it all.
