Pepperoni pieces are a spicy surprise in a colorful, crunchy salad tossed with an easy, homemade dressing.
Updated Dec 26, 2014

Ingredients

  • 1 medium red bell pepper
  • 1 package (5 oz) pepperoni links, diced
  • 3 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 bag (10 oz) ready-to-eat romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes
  • 1 can (15 oz) Progresso™ chickpeas, drained, rinsed

Steps

  • 1
    Cut bell pepper in half; remove seeds. Place halves, skin sides up, on foil-lined broiler pan. Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat about 5 minutes or until skin blackens. Place in plastic bag; let stand 10 minutes to steam. Peel skin from pepper.

    Meanwhile, line microwavable plate with microwavable paper towels. Spread diced pepperoni on plate; cover loosely with microwavable paper towel. Microwave on High 2 minutes to remove excess fat.
  • 3
    Cut roasted pepper into thin bite-size pieces.
  • 4
    In small bowl, beat oil, vinegar and garlic salt with wire whisk until well blended. In large bowl, toss lettuce, roasted pepper, pepperoni, tomatoes and chickpeas with oil-and-vinegar dressing.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Use jarred roasted red peppers instead of roasting your own.
  • tip 2
    If the outer casing on the pepperoni is tough, remove it from the pepperoni before dicing and microwaving.
