Start with the salami. Dice it into very small pieces. Add two tablespoons of Star Extra Virgin Olive Oil to a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the minced salami. Fry until crispy 8-10 minutes.
While the salami is frying, prepare the vinaigrette - add all of the ingredients to a small jar with a screw top lid. Shake vigorously. Set aside - give a good shake prior to dressing the salad.
Remove the salami when crispy and allow it to drain on a paper towel. Set aside.
Prepare the salad ingredients and add everything to a large bowl. Chop the lettuce, slice the mushrooms and tomatoes. Dice the onions.
Chop the artichokes into bite-sized pieces. Slice the hearts of palm and green olives. Add to the salad.
Add the crumbled blue cheese and freshly grated Ramano cheese. Top the salad with the fried salami.
Shake the vinaigrette then lightly dress the salad. Enjoy as a meal or with your favorite grilled meat!
