Pizza Salad with Tomato Vinaigrette

Serves: 14

Many of the ingredients in a deluxe pizza go into this no-hassle salad. Feel free to substitute pepperoni for the Canadian bacon. The dressing is great on other salads, too.

Total Time:


1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package (6 ounces) fresh baby spinach
1/2 pound canadian bacon, cut into thin strips
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
2 medium tomatoes, cut into wedges and seeded
1 medium green pepper, finely chopped
1 (2 1/4-ounce) can sliced ripe olives, drained
3 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon minced chives


In a small bowl, whisk the vinaigrette ingredients. Chill until serving.

In a large salad bowl, combine the spinach, bacon, cheeses, tomatoes, pepper, olives, basil and chives. Just before serving, whisk dressing and drizzle 1 cup over salad; toss to coat. Save remaining dressing for another use. Yield: 10-1/2 cups salad plus 3/4 cup leftover dressing.
