Antipasto Salad with Tuna
and olives / bell peppers / walnuts / pepperoncini

Active: 30 min Total: 30 min

Hopefully the weather is getting warmer, so we thought a no-cook salad might get everyone excited for spring.
Smarts: This salad is absolutely packed with Italian Antipasto ingredients, so it’s plenty filling, but you can add some fresh bread or a baguette on the side if you’d like a starch.

Make

  1. Toss mixed greens with about half of the vinaigrette.
  2. Divide greens between serving plates and top with all of the salad ingredients - salami, cheese, bell peppers, artichoke hearts, pepperoncini, tuna, olives, and walnuts. (This is also a great meal to set out salad bar style so that everyone can assemble their own.)
  3. Add remaining vinaigrette until salads are dressed to your liking. Enjoy!

We really liked this meal, surprisingly. We omitted the pepperoncini and olives. It was very good!

Doubled the dressing to save for another meal. Omitted the nuts. Served with baguette. Very good light meal and easy to pull together. The Italian tuna has so much flavor!

We enjoyed this meal. Had to sub pecans for walnuts. I used some of the leftover Greek salsa from another recipe on top as well.

We switched some of the ingredients to fit what we prefer and/or had on hand. Tuna didn't add a lot to the salad, but overall this was easy to pull together and satisfying.

Very yummy. We swapped the tuna for salmon. My husband thinks it also needed hard boiled eggs to make it perfect.
