Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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.
