My Everything Salad

My husband will show tons more enthusiasm for a dinner salad if I throw in a few extra somewhat naughty ingredients...this salad turned out tasting a bit like an Italian Sub sandwich, and I must admit it was quite tasty. The trick is to put two heaping tablespoons of dried oregano into your olive oil and vinegar/lemon dressing. Zesty! There are no rules to this one- I added what I had on hand: a can of chickpeas, a small head of red lettuce, cubed provelone cheese, and thinly sliced salami (my husband's favorite part, of course.) A little bit of Radicchio brings in a touch of color and slight bitterness. I know it's a faux pas these days to use iceberg lettuce as it has little nutritional value- but in this dish? I say do it, tastes great. Some good olive oil, a half of fresh squeezed lemon juice, a splash of vinegar. Have fun with it! Toss the salad dressing in (don't forget salt & pepper) and dive in!
