La Scala is a restaurant in Beverly Hills that is famous for their chopped salad, much loved by the Kardashians. The original salad contains sliced mozzarella as well as pecorino romano, which you can always add if you aren’t sensitive to dairy. To keep things “cheezy” in my version, I’ve added some nutritional yeast! In addition to having a similar flavor profile to cheese (savory, funky, salty, umami), nutritional yeast is a complete protein, which means it contains all 9 essential amino acids!
This salad is delicious and SO easy. I hope you love it as much as I do!
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tsp dijon
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 head of iceberg lettuce, shredded
1/4 lb salami, thinly sliced
1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 tbsp nutritional yeast
Combine your dressing ingredients in a jar and shake until well combined.
Drain and rinse your chickpeas and add to a bowl with 1/4 cup of dressing. Stir and allow to marinate for 1 hour (you can skip this step if you’re in a hurry).
Add your sliced iceberg lettuce, salami, marinated chickpeas (plus dressing), and nutritional yeast to a large bowl and toss with the remainder of your dressing.
Serve and ENJOY!
