This has an array of wonderful vegetables, meats and cheeses. Served it on a platter, instead of in a salad bowl, and it makes a beautiful presentation. Add fresh baked Italian bread and some "vino"...you're meal is complete.

How to Make Antipasto Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. The night before:
    *Layer 1 slice provolone, 1 slice salami, 1 slice ham. Roll up, and repeat for as many "roll-ups" as you'd like in your antipasto. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
    *Or, just slice and spread around the top separately. I just think the spirals look pretty.
  2. Wash all your lettuce and dry well. Roughly chop up and lay in your favorite platter or large dish. Spread all the other ingredients over the top. Slice the cheese & meat roll-ups into 1/2 pieces (like a spiral) and place over the top of the salad.
  3. Just before serving, roast the pine nuts and sprinkle over the top of all.
