  1. I had such a giggle now when I read about the celery fail. That happens to me time and time again even though I have so many plans to use them.
    Great salad! Hurray for pepperoni!

  2. I don’t buy pepperoni, but occasionally my husband gets to the grocery store and he will buy it.  The bag doesn’t last a day.  I don’t know how that man can eat so much meat so quickly-he eats it like they are chips.  I gotta convince him to put them on a SALAD next time.  That’s the way to go! :)

  3. This salad looks great and I love the addition of the pepperoni! I am 100% with ya on the celery. I tell myself it’s going to be my afternoon snack and I’ll use it in soup, and so on… :)

  4. I have a similar version of this salad in my queue to post. You can never have too many Italian salads with tart vinegar dressing. Gorgeous! PS I’m shocked to discover you’re not a fan of the black olive! But, we can still be friends. 

  5. Your blog looks awesome Ali!! Love it!

    And loving this salad, it would be a hit at pretty much every get together, such a great combo!

  6. This is a seriously beautiful salad, wow!!

  7. Gorgeous salad! And the new blog is looking spiffy. Love it!

  8. This salad looks so wonderful. I can’t wait to try it!

  9. I’ve been making this salad for years its app delicious.
    I have very picky eaters so I don’t add the onions or peppers or that basically just the lettuce,olives,pepperoni and shredded cheese with a zesty Tuscan Italian dressing and my luckiest water BEGS for this salad.
