Chopped Italian Salad

This was great! I adapted the original recipe (found on Pinterest) just a bit but kept the (amazing) dressing recipe as is.

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 Tablespoons honey (I actually used agave)
2 1/2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 red onion, finely chopped
1 cucumber, diced
1 cup pepperoni or salami
1 cup anellini pasta, cooked
1 block mozzarella cheese, diced
1 can chickpeas, drained
3 heads Romaine

In food processer, mix together all dressing ingredients until creamy. Refrigerate until serving. (You may want to re-mix again.)
In a large mixing bowl toss everything together except the Romaine.
When ready to serve, toss Romaine with the other mixture and drizzle with dressing.

If I have labeled a recipe as GlutenFree or Dairy Free but it appears to have those ingredients in it... that means the recipe is still delicious with substitutes/replacements. Ex: soy milk, lactose-free cheese, Bragg's liquid aminos (for soy sauce), all-purpose gluten free flour (Better Batter is my favorite), etc. Please check your individual ingredients to be sure they are GF or DF, if that is what you need.
