Fantastico! ~ Chopped Antipasto Salad

When we were in Myrtle Beach over the summer we went to dinner at King’s Famous Pizza {thanks Yelp!} one evening. We ordered the antipasto salad and I vowed right then and there that this was something that I was going to recreate at home. Their house dressing was amazing ~ they had obviously gotten requests from customers to buy it because they had it all bottled up and ready for sale! The best way to explain it is a cross between Italian and honey mustard ~ tangy and sweet, but not too sweet.

Last night I threw together this antipasto salad and it was quite satisfying…

Romaine, chopped

Light Salami, diced {about 10 slices ~ I used Gallo}

Lowfat mozzarella, shredded {1/2-3/4 cup}

Garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained {about 3/4 can}

Tomato, seeded and chopped

Red onion, chopped/minced

Pepperoncinis, chopped {about 6-8}

*Toss with Bernstein’s Cheese Fantastico dressing*

{light dressing that doesn’t taste light!}

Other possible add-ins: bell pepper, red pepper, cucumber, black olives, artichoke hearts or chopped giardiniera {Italian style pickled vegetables}. You could also substitute pepperoni or other Italian meats for the salami. Next time I’ll add in just a bit of honey mustard and try to recreate King’s house dressing.

Enjoy!
