This simple antipasto salad can be made ahead of time and is perfect as an appetizer or even a meal.  If you’ve ever had an appetizer for dinner before, it can sometimes be just the perfect size as a meal for one.

When it comes to salads, one of my favorites is antipasto salad but only if the ingredients are super fresh, and it’s nicely chilled for added crispness.

This salad is especially pretty when presented on a platter where each type of ingredient is displayed.  It’s a great salad to make ahead of time too.  The tricky part about making this ahead of time is finding enough room in the refrigerator to store it until serving time.

I have to be careful not to put salads on the top shelf in my refrigerator because it gets too cold and freezes the lettuce.  Same with other leafy vegetables and herbs I buy like cilantro and spinach. It’s so disappointing when reaching for a leafy veggie ingredient in the fridge and it’s ruined because it’s partially frozen.

Okay, back to this wonderful antipasto salad.

So let’s check out the ingredients.

  1. Taking the concept of antipasto and turning it into a salad is such a great idea. I love how fresh and healthy this is! Whilst still being REALLY delicious.
