Shopping Tips
One of my favorite store-bought dressing is Girard’s Light Champagne Dressing.  It’s sold in most large supermarket chains in the salad dressing aisle. I found them at Von’s/Safeway.
I used Gallo reduced-fat salami. This brand and other brands are available in the luncheon meat section of the supermarket. In addition, I like Columbus Lite Italian Dry Salami and it’s gluten-free. I found it at Von’s/Safeway in the deli section.
