Sloppy Salad

My Blair county friends should know where I got the inspiration for this salad. My favorite old school Italian restaurant is Lena’s in Altoona, PA. You can order their house salad sloppy and they put a huge meatball and lots of sauce on top.

This is a game day meal for us. I serve my family meatball subs and I eat this. I’m not afraid of carbs sometimes I just chose to drink them. I use Aldi’s meatballs. Not the frozen ones. I’ve had people tell me this was their favorite meatball sandwich ever but unfortunately I can’t take the credit. My youngest son took a bite of his sub today and said…shut the front door-these meatballs are amazing.

Lena’s uses a lot more sauce. I go light as I like to taste the dressing.
Here are the meatballs, sauce, and rolls I use for the subs. All from ALDI and I cook them in a cook pot.

I switched up the cheese based off of what I had in my frig.

Here is the salad pre meatballs and sauce. Enjoy!
