If you’ve ever eaten in Italianni’s, you’ve probably noticed that every table has their signature Sicilian salad on the table. It’s become a favorite of many—just like one of our readers who asked us to hack it. (That’s right, we make wishes come true. It’s Christmas, after all.) Unlike typical Sicilian-style salads, Italianni’s’ version swaps out oranges for mangoes and grapes; and uses mayonnaise for the dressing (instead of olive oil). It also has anchovies for added umami flavor.
Our recipe adds chicken into the mix for some protein. Don’t worry, it’s not really extra work. You can even opt to leave it out, or use pre-cooked rotisserie chicken. Double (or triple) the recipe, and you’ve got yourself your potluck contribution.
