Simple Antipasto Salad (The Way My Mom Made It)

Recipe by blancpage
READY IN: 20mins


  • 1
    head iceberg lettuce, chopped and shredded
  • 34 - 1
    lb hard salami (Hormel Hard Salami or Genoa is good for this, ask your deli to slice into 1/4 inch-thick slices)
  • 2 -4
    tomatoes, chopped
  • 12 - 1
  • 12
    cup Italian dressing (my fave is Kraft, and you can use light or fat-free instead)


  • Remove outer leaves and wash the iceberg lettuce and pat dry.
  • Chop and shred the iceberg lettuce and place in large bowl.
  • Chop the 1/4 inch-thick salami slices into bite-sized chunks. Add to the iceberg.
  • Chop tomatoes, add to the iceberg.
  • Sprinkle salad with desired amount of shredded mozzarella cheese.
  • When ready to serve, pour over your favorite Italian dressing and toss to coat.
  • Note: If you know there won't be enough people to finish the salad in one sitting, assemble only a small amount to serve at the time, and keep the rest of the prepared ingredients in separate containers in the fridge and assemble right before eating to prevent sogginess.
