Popcorn on top of a salad? Why not? We all know that Bethenny loves a good salad – particularly with a combination of ingredients she already has in her kitchen. Follow the recipe below to recreate the Skinnygirl Italian Salad as seen on Episode 6 of The Big Shot with Bethenny. Bethenny uses our Skinnygirl Dressing and Skinnygirl Popcorn in this recipe but you can use your favorite brands of both.
Step 1 – THE POPCORN CROUTONS
Pop the popcorn in the microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Crush popcorn. Preheat the oven to 350° degrees F. Toss popcorn with olive oil on a baking sheet, season with salt and pepper. Bake, tossing occasionally, until golden, 10 –15 minutes.
Step 2 – THE LETTUCE
Roughly chop the romaine lettuce and throw in a big bowl. Add the olives, pepperoncini, onions, and tomatoes.
Step 3 – THE CHEESE
Use a vegetable peeler to thinly shave a modest amount of parmesan on top for little salty bursts.
Step 4 – THE ASSEMBLY
Skip the tongs. Use your hands to gently toss the lettuce, croutons, and Skinnygirl Italian dressing, then top off with the shaved parm.
