Antipasto Salad

Antipasto Salad

This is another recipe inspired by a lunch out.   Salads are one of the safest choices for a person who eats a gluten free diet, especially at an Italian restaurant. ( I just have to always remember to tell the food server to leave off any croutons and put the dressing on the side. )

There I was, watching pasta and breaded meats being served at tables all around me, the aroma of wonderfully off-limit foods wafting from the kitchen.  I quickly grabbed the menu and started debating between a soup (not appealing when it’s 90 degrees outside) and salad.  And there it was.  Antipaso Salad:  meat, cheese, and olives artfully arranged with lettuce and hard boiled eggs.  What’s not to love in that combination?

Within days, I was at Winn Dixie hunting down the ingredients so I could serve my own version at home.  Other than the turned up noses at the Kalamata olives, the salad was a huge success.  My carnivorous family cheered at all of the protein on their plate.  I did have to allow ranch dressing on the table for the gastronomic cretins that don’t enjoy a good Italian dressing, though.  That’s always disappointing.
