Pepperoni Caesar Salad

October 17, 2019Teresa

Pepperoni Caesar Salad is absolutely scrumptious. It’s a delightful take off on Caesar Salad adding pepperoni to the mix. If you enjoy pepperoni in other things than pizza, you’ll love this recipe!

I found this recipe decades ago in a magazine. I believe it was published by Hormel. Their current version has tomatoes. My older version did not. I have not made the salad in years. But I decided to whip it out again and make it for our college/young adult group a couple of weeks ago.

We work with another couple from our church serving dinner every Sunday night. The kids all love having a break from campus food. They particularly like all the different kinds of salads I make. We served pizza the night we made this and a Caesar Pasta Salad. This particular salad was totally cleaned out that night. There were NO leftovers.

This salad is really easy to make. Even the homemade salad dressing is quickly made up in the blender. Truly, this is one of those salads that can be prepared in about 10 minutes if you need a salad in a jiffy.

Pepperoni Caesar Salad really hits the spot if you’re looking for something different. You get the enjoyment of Caesar Salad with the addition of pepperoni. Break out of your salad rut and give this one a try.
