Italian Chopped Salad for Two

So I love Italian Subs, and this reminded me of a sub without the bread.  It is a little high in calories, but definitely worth it.  You could easily make this 3 portions.

For the dressing:
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 small clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon minced shallot
1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the salad:
1 15 ounce can cannellini beans, drained
1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
2 ounces Pecorino Romano or provolone cheese, diced small
3 ounces salami, sliced into thin ribbons
6 oil packed sun dried tomatoes, coarsely chopped
12 kalamata olive, pitted and coarsely chopped (didn't use)
Added 4 Pepperoncinis

To make the dressing:
In a medium bowl, whisk together vinegar, mustard, garlic, shallot and Italian seasoning. Slowly drizzle in olive oil, whisking constantly. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

For the salad:
Place cannelini beans in a large salad bowl. Add dressing and gently stir to combine. Let stand 10 minutes. Add chopped romaine to beans and toss gently to incorporate beans and coat lettuce with dressing. Sprinkle remaining ingredients over and serve.
