Active: 30 Total: 30
This no-cook entree salad is great for a warm, late-summer night or for any night when you just need something fast, easy, and fresh. This meal was last featured in spring of 2020.
Smarts: This salad is absolutely packed with Italian Antipasto ingredients, so it’s plenty filling, but fresh bread is great on the side if you’d like.

Made this for lunch salads each day. Mixed the dressing with the tuna and stored in a separate container. It was wonderful!

Very quick to make, good flavor profile. Provolone would have been better shredded or in tiny chunks.

I omitted the olives because I'm not a fan. The salad was good, pretty filling, but I think I could have doubled the dressing.
