Antipasto salad

“American style”
Antipasto means "before the meal" and is the traditional first course of a formal Italian meal. Most table settings will feature a central antipasto plate, and small plates for each diner to enjoy this warm-up to the other courses.

Antipasto can consist of many things. So don’t be afraid to experiment.-it’s very hard to go wrong. We say this is “American Style” because we include lettuce. In Italy, the lettuce is typically omitted.

  1 head of Romaine lettuce, cut into bite-sized pieces
  8 ounces Genoa salami, sliced
  8 ounces pepperoni, sliced
  8 ounces prosciutto, rolled up
  4 ounces sharp provolone cheese, cut into bite-size pieces
  4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into bite-size pieces
  2 Roma tomatoes, sliced or cut into wedges
  1/2 cup Kalamata olives
  1/4 cup green olives
  Peperoncini peppers
  1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  3 tablespoons red wine or balsamic vinegar
  Parmesan cheese
  Salt and pepper to taste


Place the lettuce on a large serving platter. Arrange the salami, cheeses, tomatoes, olives, and peppers over top. Sprinkle with grated Parmeasan cheese. Salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle with olive oil and vinegar.
