Antipasto Salad - Dash of Mandi

One of my favorite salads – especially in the summertime is this fully loaded antipasto salad. It has all the delicious savory Italian flavors packed in it. It makes the perfect entree salad or you can serve it as a side for a party/BBQ. I love how light it is, yet super satisfying.

You can make this salad using a few different variations. I used chopped butter lettuce but chopped romaine would also be great! I got uncured salami from Trader Joe’s for in it, but sometimes I use uncured turkey pepperoni.. or both! If you’re vegetarian, this salad is still amazing without the meat… add some extra veggies instead!
