This Antipasto Salad was created in connection with my appointment as a contributor to the Nakano Natural and Seasoned Rice Vinegar. I have been compensated for my time commitment to work with their product, however my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.
If you love antipasto flavors and a big, filling salad, then this Antipasto Salad with a Sun-Dried Tomato Vinaigrette Pesto is going to knock your socks off. Though antipasto technically means “before the meal,” trust me, one of these salads is a meal in itself. This dish is full of the flavors of an antipasto spread: cured meats like salami, prosciutto, ham and pepperoni, Mozzarella cheese, mushrooms, artichokes, olives, pepperoncini and it’s all tossed in a tangy, sweet, garlicky sun-dried tomato vinaigrette pesto that you’re going to want to start putting on everything.
