Ingredients

Ingredients:

  • 10 oz Chicken Sausage
  • 1 cup Sweet Mini Peppers
  • 6 oz Grape Tomatoes
  • 1 head Romaine Lettuce
  • 4 Cucumbers, peeled and sliced
  • 1 Sweet Onion, sliced
  • 1 tsp 1.2g, Kosher Salt
  • 1 tbsp Cheese - Parmesan, shredded
  • half can Black Olives
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil

Instructions

Directions:

  1. Cook chicken sausage in olive oil until heated through and slice

  2. While the sausage is cooking, slice and chop the other veggies and toss into a bowl

  3. Add sliced chicken sausage and dressing (see below), and toss until everything is coated nicely. Top with grated parmesan cheese.

Dressing:

  1. This is where I like to cheat and use Olive Garden Italian dressing or Newman's Own Creamy Italian dressing from the store. You just can't beat it!

  2. However, if you prefer you to make your own, this recipe from Family Fresh Meals is yum:
