This salad is served at the popular California Pizza Kitchen chain of restaurants. Don't let the fact that its a salad fool you into thinking its low calorie (that's 860 calories per appetizer portion). However, you can play around with it by using leaner cuts of meat, "lite" cheeses, and less oil in the dressing.

1 teaspoon garlic - minced
2 teaspoons shallot - minced
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 1/3 cups olive oil
3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese - grated
1/2 head iceberg lettuce - chopped
1/2 head romaine lettuce - chopped
12 large basil leaves - chopped
2 cups salami - sliced 1/8" thick
3 cups mozzarella cheese - shredded
1 cup garbanzo beans - chopped
4 cups tomato - diced
3 cups turkey breast - diced
2 tablespoons scallions - chopped

For the Dressing

Process all the ingredients except the oil in a blender. Slowly blend in oil. When the oil has been incorporated, stir in Parmesan. Set aside in the refrigerator.

For the Salad

Toss the first 6 ingredients (iceberg lettuce thru the garbanzo beans) with the dressing in a large bowl. Transfer the salads to chilled salad plates. Surround each serving with a ring of diced tomatoes and top with diced turkey. Garnish with chopped scallions.
