Tip!

To keep the lettuce crisp, make sure to add the dressing at time of serving, not beforehand.

This salad is based on classic Italian cold cuts but you can always personalize it to your own liking. For example, you can replace ham and salami with tuna or mackerel in tomato sauce. You can also add chicken leftovers, marinated shrimp or crab meat. For some extra protein, add some boiled eggs.
