Pepperoni Pizza Salad with Tomato Basil Vinaigrette

The weather has still been warm here in the Pacific Northwest and I’ve been on a salad kick for taking to lunch to work, since there are limitless keto-friendly combinations and it’s super fast to put together. I simple take the dressing in a separate container and the salad sits happy in my lunch bag until I’m ready to eat it. This salad combo came about after I stocked up on keto foods the other day at my local restaurant supply store. I bought a giant bag of pepperoni slices, which make a great keto snack on their own, but it started me thinking about other uses for them. I only had cheddar on hand, but mozzarella would be more appropriate for a pizza themed salad. I also had a small jar of black olives on hand, but of course you could customize this salad with your own favorite pizza toppings – bell peppers, cooked mushrooms, sausage, etc. The Tomato Basil Vinaigrette dressing is the real kicker that tastes like pizza sauce.  And if you look at the nutrition info below, this might be the most nutritious pizza you’ve ever eaten.
