6Salami - Stack 3 slices of the salami and cut in half. Cut very thin slices ( the size of dried fettucini pasta) and separate the slices.

7Place all ingredients except the salt and pepper and salad dressing into a large bowl. You can now add half of the bottle of dressing. Put the remainder aside. Mix all ingredients throughly.
