My go-to salad recipe is this fresh and flavorful Italian Salad. It’s made with crisp lettuce, ripe tomatoes, red onion, sliced black olives, crunchy croutons, Parmesan cheese and zesty pepperoncinis. All of that deliciousness gets tossed in an easy homemade Italian vinaigrette for an irresistible Italian salad, you’re going to want to serve with everything. And you totally can because this salad pairs well with pretty much any dish and it’s fabulous topped with chicken, shrimp or fish for a light meal.

We love this salad served alongside our favorite Italian inspired dishes from spaghetti and meatballs to this easy baked chicken parmesan. Oh and it’s a must when I bake up my easy lasagna recipe!
