Inspired by the famous La Scala Beverly Hills Italian chopped salad, in this recipe, we’re using kale because it packs way more nutrients than plain old iceberg lettuce. I’m not saying this salad is life changing, but I’m not saying it isn’t life changing either. Let’s get to it!

With cherry tomatoes, cucumber, mozzarella, parmesan, and a red wine vinaigrette, this salad is as vibrant in color as it is in flavor. The acidity from the lemon and red wine vinaigrette perfectly balance the sharp kick of the parmesan and the heartiness of the garbanzo beans and salami, making this the perfect Italian salad. And, if you’re looking to turn this into a complete meal, I recommend pairing this with my Air Fryer Hot Honey Chicken. Crunchy, sweet, and just a little bit spicy, it’s the perfect complement to this Hollywood favorite.

Here’s how you’ll make my La Scala Chopped Kale Salad:

  1. Start by whisking together all ingredients for the dressing, adding olive oil last as you whisk.
  2. Add the kale to a large serving bowl and dress.
  3. Add all remaining ingredients, tossing well.
  4. Divide, serve, and enjoy! Leftover will keep well in the fridge!
Cheese, meat, and cherry tomatoes…what else could you ask for in a salad?
