Using a grinder or crucible, crush together the garlic, oregano, and salt until grainy paste forms. Transfer mixture to a large bowl and whisk in the lemon juice and red wine vinegar. Once the salt dissolves, whisk in the olive oil.
Add the chickpeas, red onion, provolone, salami, and pepperoni to the bowl and toss well with the dressing. Add the pepperoncini and toss once more.
Add half of the lettuce and radicchio and carefully toss to coat, then add the remaining lettuce and radicchio and toss once more. Serve immediately and enjoy!
I recommend a medium-to-large-sized head of lettuce for this salad.
