Antipasto Salad

It turns out that I eat a lot of antipasto salad. This is the third different variation I’ve posted, and I have to say that it is probably my favorite. But, I’ll eat any antipasto salad, any time, anywhere. They’re great for picnics or cookouts, for starters. And they have salami in them, which is probably the real reason I love them.

Antipasto Salad

You can buy the salad dressing packets in the store or better, make your own. It’s very easy to do. I use my homemade Italian vinaigrette in another variation of this tortellini salad. Come to think of it, I have even another version you’ll want to try too!
