Antipasto Salad

 



Prep Time: 25 minutes
Other Time: Chill 1 hour
Servings: 8

You'll love the color and texture of this make-ahead classic. So-easy-to-assemble black and green olives marinate with salami, cheese, marinated vegetables and red wine garlic vinaigrette for a tasty take on everybody's Italian favorite. You can make individual bites by skewering a few morsels on a toothpick and presenting them decoratively on a serving tray, or simply serve it in a festive bowl and allow your guests to serve themselves. Either way, they’ll keep coming back for more!

Ingredients:

8 oz. salami, cubed
8 oz. aged Gouda cheese, cubed
1 pint cherry tomatoes
1 (6 oz.) can Lindsay® Ripe Pitted Olives, drained
1 (5.75 oz.) jar Lindsay® Pimiento Stuffed Manzanilla Spanish Olives, drained
2 cups drained, quartered marinated artichoke hearts
1 cup bottled Peppadew peppers or sliced roasted red peppers
*Red Wine Vinaigrette
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup olive oil

Directions:

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except vinaigrette. Toss with 1/4 cup vinaigrette to coat. (Refrigerate remaining vinaigrette up to 2 weeks.) Chill salad at least 1 hour or up to 2 days ahead. Let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.

In a medium bowl, combine the vinegar, honey, garlic, salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in the olive oil.

For a beautiful presentation, arrange the antipasto on a white platter or bowl and garnish at opposite corners with bunches of Italian flat leaf parsley.
