This is a hit at every party where I serve it. It's really simple and all of it can be made ahead of time. I usually add everything to a large ziploc bag and store in the refrigerator until serving time. One of the ingredients that I always add are gardinere, but Zaar doesn't recognize it. The leftovers are really good mixed in a salad too. From Prego Easy Italian Recipes.

What a great antipasto salad! So pretty and the flavor is wonderful. I couldnt find the Marie's Italian Dressing so I used Kraft and bought some Italian salami to go along with the pepperoni. Not real fond of raw mushrooms so I cut those back to about a cup and served on romaine lettuce leaves. Poured the dressing in a large ziploc bag, added the ingredients, and marinated for 2 hours. Very good! Made and reviewed for the Let's P-A-R-T-Y! December Cooking Event [
Excellent! I love antipasto salads....they are so versatile and quick! I make a similar antipasto salad, but saw yours and thought I'd try it for ZWT 4!
EXCELLENTAY! SIMPLE COLORFUL and FLAVORFUL! I made 8 servings. I used Newman's light Italian dressing, a whole jar of mild sliced pepperoncini peppers, whole black olives, sliced provolone, baby bella mushrooms, sweet cherry tomatoes and light pepperoni. I served it atop lettuce leaves. I really loved the big chunky ingredients. My hubby couldn't get enough of this...he didn't want to share with me and Freddy. Made for the Zaar tag game.
