ANTIPASTO SALAD

Meryl Hausner Recipe

By Meryl Hausner MeMe1130

I love any kind of salad & I love pasta. This is a great combination of salad & pasta. You can improvise & add other ingredients that you might like. I have added fresh mozzarella. Although some garlic bread on the side is always delicious. Enjoy
