Pepperoni Pizza Salad

 Pepperoni Pizza Salad
I like to serve this refreshing salad during the summer when my family craves pizza but I don't want to heat up the house by turning on the oven. It's so popular at potlucks that I always bring home an empty bowl. -Cathy Riebschlager, Hordville, Nebraska
