Antipasto Salad

Here’s another great application for pickled onions! Antipasto salad can have many things in it, I used the ingredients I found in my fridge. I started by chopping red leaf lettuce and putting it in a bowl. Then I added pickled onion and thin strips of havarti cheese and italian dry salame. While Gar and I were waiting for our dinner to cook, I grabbed some tongs and filled up some small bowls with salad. Finally, I drizzled some of our favorite Italian dressing on top and stored the rest of the salad in the fridge until lunch the next day. If I had some good ham in the house, I would have used that for the salad as well. Although mozzarella or even provolone would have been a more common choice, the havarti worked incredibly well. Other great options to add to this salad includes tomato, olives, peperoncinis, roasted red bell peppers, artichoke hearts, mushrooms, basil, and parsley.
