ITALIAN CHEF'S SALAD
Penny Pinching Main Dishes p.81
Why do they always call this entree salad the "chef's" salad? you may wonder. Probably because the first chef who served it was tidying up his larder and decided to toss in a bit of this and the last little piece of that, creating the delectable tradition that blends meat and cheese with assorted veggies. Delicioso!
