At a Glance
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Serves: 6 Individuals

No special equipment is needed to make this classic Italian salad.


Base Salad:
1 large Tomato, finely sliced
1 tablespoon of Blue Cheese, crumbled
3 Green Onions, finely chopped  (chop the entire green onion including the green scallion)
1 ball of Mozzarella Cheese, thinly sliced  -- approximately ¾ of a pound in total
15 leaves (small to medium size) of Basil, chopped into thin strips
½ White Onion (medium size), finely chopped
8 to 12  Kalamata Olives, finely chopped
1 ½ tablespoon Pepperoncini, finely chopped  
2 tablespoons Artichoke Hearts, finely chopped
1 ½ tablespoons of Pesto Sauce (please see our separate recipe for Pesto Sauce)
Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper to taste

Salad second-layer topping:
8 to 10 ounces Arugula
8 to 10 baby Grape Tomatoes
4 Green Onions, chopped
10 small-to-medium Basil leaves, chopped
1 to 1 ½ tablespoons Vinaigrette – to taste (Please see our separate recipe for Vinaigrette Salad Dressing.)


Once all of the ingredients are sliced/chopped begin to layer them onto a plate.  Then, in a separate bowl for the second-layer topping, combine the arugula, tomatoes, green onions and refrigerate.  Just before serving, mix vinaigrette in with arugula tomatoes, basil, and green onions.  Spoon the salad mixture over base salad and serve.

As a serving suggestion, we recommend using our Vinaigrette Salad Dressing on this wonderful salad.
