Chop Chop Salad

A chop chop salad is definitely my number one ordered salad when I go out to restaurants.  There are so many different variations but this recipe combines some of my favorite ingredients.

3 cups julienne-sliced romaine lettuce
1 tablespoon julienne-sliced fresh basil
2 tablespoons italian provolone cheese , cut in 1/4-inch cubes
1 tablespoon garbanzo beans
2 tablespoons genoa salami or 2 tablespoons wine salami
3 tablespoons powdered parmesan cheese
¼ cup julienne-sliced smoked turkey breast
chopped tomato (to garnish)
freshly cracked pepper
balsamic vinaigrette

Dressing
2 pasteurized egg yolks (I left these out)
¾ cup balsamic vinegar
3 finely minced garlic cloves
¾ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
2 cups olive oil

Make dressing in a mixing bowl. Whisk egg yolks for 2-3 minutes, then add vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper. Whisk 2-3 minutes. Slowly add oil to emulsify. Refrigerate until needed.

Combine greens, basil, provolone, garbanzos, salami in a bowl; add ½ cup dressing. Toss to combine. Add parmesan, turkey, tomato and toss.
