Italian Chopped Salad

Just say YES to this amazing Italian chopped salad... based on the salad from California Pizza kitchen, this salad is full of vegetables with a touch of Italian deli meats, and is reminiscent of a deconstructed Italian hoagie. Best of all, it's very easily customizable to your preference. Easy and tasty!
