Italian Mixed Salad

Origin: U.S.A.

2 teaspoons olive oil
12 ounces turkey sausage, casings removed
1/2 head romaine lettuce, cut into bite-size pieces
1/2 head butter lettuce, cut into bite-size pieces
1/4 head iceberg lettuce, cut into bite-size pieces
2 tomatoes, coarsely chopped
6 ounces Provolone, cubed
3/4 cup rinsed canned red kidney beans, patted dry
3/4 cup rinsed canned garbanzo beans, patted dry
Red Wine Vinaigrette, recipe follows
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Heat the oil in a heavy medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook
until brown and cooked through, breaking the sausage into bite-size pieces, about 5 to 8
minutes. Transfer the sausage to a plate. Cool to room temperature.
Chop and combine the lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and cooked sausage in a large bowl. Add beans and enough vinaigrette to coat. Season the salad with salt and pepper, to
taste, and serve.
