I got the idea for this salad from a tv show years ago actually. From Everyday Italian... what a great show! She made a saute'd romane lettuce and two bean salad. She had garbanzos and kidney beans, but Don doesn't eat garbanzos.... so there goes that. She had salami and provalone cheese and then made her own italian dressing. Which I did once... but since then I have modified it to kidney beans, salami, provalone, and ceasar dressing from Newmans Own on organic butter and romane lettuce from the csa stand. Fresh from the ground to the table. And OMG was it good.
