Crisp Italian Salad with Creamy Parmesan Dressing
This salad is all about texture and flavor — crisp romaine is a refreshing base to this side salad. Juicy cherry tomatoes, salty olives, and, of course, zesty pepperoncinis provide a slightly acidic, tart bite to contrast anything rich or long-cooked. A creamy Parmesan dressing completes this into the perfect Italian salad.
