Salami and Asparagus Salad with Pesto Dressing

This is another "hey what in the fridge can I toss together to make dinner?" kind of meal. It was getting late, I didn't feel like going to the store after work and I needed dinner. I had salami, goat mozzarella, leftover asparagus and some pesto sauce. I didn't feel like pasta, so I made a salad!

This salad really reminded me of one of my favorite snacks I had growing up. It was iceberg lettuce, salami, pepperjack cheese, diced white onion and Italian Good Seasonings dressing. I loved eating that salad and would eat bowl fulls. I think my newer version is a lot tastier and has more grown up flavors, don't ya think?
