That is, until my older brother managed to make a replica that tastes pretty much the same. It is delicious and everyone in this family gobbles down a huge bowl of it faster than thought possible.
Place one bag of salad in large bowl. Add sliced onions (purple work best). Add pickled banana peppers and olives (we don't like black olives so substitute green in their place), adding a bit of juice from each jar into the salad. Toss. Add in croutons and Italian dressing. Toss again. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve.
