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.

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