A Nice Italian Girl's Salad

Great Rachel Ray recipe!

1 sack (10 oz) chopped romaine lettuce
1/2 cup black pitted olives
1 roasted red pepper from a jar, drained and sliced
12 grape tomatoes
24 slices pepperoni

Italian Blender Dressing
3 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 Tablespoons chopped green salad olives with red pimientos and juice
6 fresh basil leaves, torn up
2 to 3 Tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
3 big spoonfuls grated parmesan, Parmigiano Reggiano, or Romano cheese
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup extra- virgin olive oil

Pour lettuce into a big salad bowl. Break up the olives, bail, parsley, cheese, pepper, and olive oil. Place the lid on the blender and blend the dressing until everything is all chopped up and mixed up together. Pour dressing over the salad and toss it up good.
