Antipasti Caprese Salad

In summertime, this salad gives you the best of both worlds: the fresh seasonal flavors of a Caprese salad, and all of our favorite goodies from a classic Antipasti salad in one! Best of all, there’s no cooking required for this dish – perfect for a warm day. It has the bright and refreshing quality of a Caprese salad, with added interest and heft from salame and green olives.

What we love about this recipe is the versatility. You can serve it up as is, or with crusty bread to soak up the vinaigrette, or even use this as a sort of fresh sauce to toss with a short pasta like rigatoni or orecchiette.
