AntiPasto Salad


AntiPasto's literal translation is 'Before the Meal' and is a traditional Italian starter course for meal time.  And I can't think of a better way to start a meal than with mouth watering cheeses, cured meats and the perfect vinaigrette dressing.  The dressing in this recipe truly makes the meal.  Just the right mix of Balsamic, Olive Oil and herbs send you on the right course for a great meal. 
Personally, I have a hard time remembering whether it is called AntiPastO or AntiPastA.  Primarily because it somewhat feels like a pasta salad without the pasta - aka, AntiPasta.  Either way you want to say it, this salad will be a big hit at your next gathering.
