"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Kim Brown


1 head iceberg lettuce chopped ( I often use Romaine, because we love it!)
╝álb chopped ham
╝álb chopped turkey
╝álb chopped hard salami
╝álb pepperoni
1 red onion sliced
2 tomatoes sliced
1 C shredded cheese (provolone or Swiss are best)
Italian Hard Rolls
żác Olive oil
╝ác tarragon vinegar
⅛át pepper
Żát dried oregano
1 t salt
╝át garlic powder

1. Mix up dressing, pour over salad ingredients, toss well. Before you serve throw in torn up pieces of Italian hard rolls.
2. From experience:
3. You can use all of the meat flavors, like it calls for, or just use the ones that you like. i like to use them all. I like to chop some, Juliane some, and for the pepperoni, I love the mini ones!! I prefer the provolone cheese when I make it. It calls for shredded cheese, but I buy it in the deli section, of the grocery (have them cut it a little thicker) and Julianne cut it instead. The original recipe calls for iceberg lettuce, that is
how I made it for the photo. I prefer romaine, but again, to each their own! When it comes to tomatoes, I prefer to use the Roma style ones. The Italian hard rolls are best. They stand up better to the dressing, if you are in Nebraska, I always use the Rotella Bakery ones! Lastly, to me, a little red onion goes a long way, so I usually use less than the recipe calls for. Follow it how the recipe reads, or if you're like me teak it until
it's your own!
