This is a delicious salad that was served with Pissaladiere by Sylvie. I used hard salami, roasted red peppers, and fresh mozzarella cheese. Each serving was garnished with pepperoncini peppers and I did toss in the fresh basil.
Okay, I never thought anyone needed a recipe to make a salad, but after trying this recipe, all salads should have one. The salad was bursting with flavors and not one vegetable, meat slice or even drop of dressing was left in the bowl at the end of the meal. Such a great combo of meats, veggies and cheese. I added in all of the optional ingredients and thought the end result could not have been better. I served the salad along with the Absolute Best Ever Lasagna by ratherbeswimmin' and Italian Bread Casserole by Brook the Cook in WI. This recipe could make me into a salad eater on a regular basis.
Made this with salami, and we loved it! The fresh basil really made this special.
We enjoyed this salad immensely. I made as listed except I left out the onion because I don't care for raw onion. I used pepperoni as the meat choice because it is what I had on hand. I added the optional pepperoncini and provolone (in strips).
I made half a recipe and added heart of palm and it is one delicious salad. I served it with Chicago Italian Beef.
Yummy in the tummy! I am making this for Christmas Day dinner (and, not just any ol' dish gets added to that menu, let me tell you!) -- thanks so much for sharing! Viclynn
Not my cup of tea, I found it to be too salty.
Wonderful! Spicy...tart...savoury...perky. Loved this salad.
Great recipe. I didn't have the artichoke heart, and added some other deli meats and homegrown tomatoes. My husband likes taking this in his lunch :-) For ZWT4 Flying Duchess'
What a wonderful way to start any meal, although I could actually eat this for my main meal! I followed the recipe exactly, including all the optional ingredients, using salami, and adding some oil-cured olives and grape tomatoes. It was absolutely wonderful, and I will most definitely be making this many times again. Tagged, made and reviewed for Zaar World Tour 4.
