There is just something about a cold salad that reminds me of picnics and family reunions. You will definitely surprise your family (hopefully in a good way) when they find out this Antipasto Salad is on the menu!
WHAT IS ANTIPASTO?
According to Google…typical ingredients of a traditional antipasto include cured meats, olives, peperoncini, mushrooms, anchovies, artichoke hearts, various cheeses, pickled meats, and vegetables in oil or vinegar.
I like to use a combo of pepperoni or salami, black olives, bell pepper, zucchini, pepperoncinis, mozzarella pearls, chopped basil, and Italian dressing.
To get started with our antipasto salad, we need to chop our ingredients. I chopped everything in an equal size so it mixed together well.
Throw everything in a bowl and mix in the Italian dressing. Give it a taste and season with salt and pepper.
I then let it hang out in the fridge for about an hour to let the flavors get all yummy.
