Do-Ahead
Make this salad a day ahead, but wait to stir in the lettuce, croutons and Parmesan topping until just before serving.
Substitution
Make it your way. Use a 3.5-ounce package of sliced pepperoni instead of the salami; cut the slices in half. Add canned (drained) artichoke hearts, or use other olives from the deli.
Time-Saver
Purchase a bag of ready-to-eat torn romaine lettuce to save time.
