From Bellville, Ohio, Gayle Parker sent a snappy recipe for Italian Tossed Salad that pressed-for-time cooks can squeeze into any menu. Simple and colorful, it complements a casual lunch or a fancy holiday dinner, she writes. It's a little different from plain old iceberg lettuce and tomatoes. Canned kidney beans add protein and texture, and the pepperoni and other fixings give it a fresh zesty taste. I belong to a camping club that meets monthly, says Gayle. This salad is easy to prepare in our compact motor home kitchen, so I often take it to our potluck suppers.


  • 1 package (12 ounces) ready-to-serve salad greens
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup canned kidney beans, drained
  • 1 cup diced pepperoni
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup Italian salad dressing


  1. In a salad bowl, combine the salad greens, cheese, beans, pepperoni, onion and diced tomatoes. Drizzle with dressing; toss to coat.
