Tossed Pepperoni Pizza Salad Recipe

Tossed Pepperoni Pizza Salad Recipe

Sun-dried tomato dressing is a perfect complement to the peppers, cheese and pepperoni in this fun recipe I call "Pizzalicious Salad." For a change of pace, I sometimes omit the sun-dried tomato dressing and drizzle the mozzarella cubes with olive oil. —Lisa DeMarsh, Mount Solon, Virginia
