Saturday Night Italian Salad

Saturday Night Italian Salad is my father’s own creation.

For as long as I can remember, at least once a month on a Saturday evening my dad would cook steaks on the grill.

He always prepared this salad, the perfect culinary accompaniment to grilled steaks.

This salad is basically a meal in itself, or at the very least, your daily dose of greens and vegetables.
