Paleo Sardines and Pepperoni Salad Recipe

sardine and pepperoni salad

Here is a quick salad recipe for you.  It’s a wonderful mix of flavors for your palate.  I grew up eating sardines.  My Ma always had plenty of cans of sardines stashed away in her pantry.  As I grew up, I experimented with mixing them with different ingredients.  This recipe was the result of one of those experiments.  The add in of pepperoni lends a salty, spicy bite to this crunchy briny salad.  Enjoy!
