This salad is so fun to eat because there are so many different flavors in every bite. Adding my favorite meats like salami and prosciutto to this salad is the best way to enjoy them! Besides with a glass of wine of course..

You also may be wondering- what is antipasto or antipasti? It is traditionally the first course of an Italian meal. Or you can call it an appetizer. I am guilty of almost always having salami in our fridge at home.

Antipasto does not include pasta because pasta is usually apart of the second or third course. The basics are cured meats, cheeses, pickled vegetables, olives and anchovies. There is no right or wrong way to serve it. It is all delicious!

What’s not to love about this salad? One of the most enjoyable ways to serve this Antipasto Salad is of course with an Italian meal or pasta dish. This will be your new Sunday go-to!
