What is "Healthified"?
We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.
Substitution
We've called for Genoa salami because it's a traditional Italian favorite, but you could use any salami that you like in this restaurant-style salad.
Did You Know?
Parmesan cheese was used instead of provolone because it packs a large amount of flavor in a smaller amount—you won't miss the extra cheese!
