Italian Tossed Salad

I tossed this together with things I had on hand to bring to a pizza party at a friend's house the other night.  It was super easy, and was a nice alternative to Caesar salad or just a plain dinner salad.  I didn't really measure, so I'm guessing below, but like I always say, do what looks right to you!

Italian Tossed Salad
2 hearts of Romaine, chopped, washed, dried 
about 1/3 c. chopped hard salami
about 1/3 c. chopped Picante Provolone cheese
1/2 of a small red onion, sliced very thin
banana pepper rings (a few forkfuls from the jar)
2 tbsp. Italian dressing (I poured a little in, and then tossed to coat, and adjusted as needed)
2 tbsp. of grated Parmesan
freshly ground black pepper

Note: If you're bringing the dish somewhere, add the dressing when you get there so it doesn't get soggy. Add lettuce to a large bowl.  Sprinkle in salami, cheeses, onion, banana peppers, a few good grinds of black pepper, and toss to combine.  Add dressing when ready to serve.
