I love chef salad, I owned a restaurant for five years and my chef salad quickly became a best seller! Not only is it a healthy alternative to a full course meal this salad is loaded and will fill you up and keep your tummy from grumbling for hours.

1/2 cup of smoked turkey breast (deli style sliced and cut into bite size pieces)
1/3 cup of pepperoni
