Making a salad for a crowd doesn’t get any easier than adding all the antipasto toppings like olives, pickled veggies, artichokes, pepperoncini, salami, salumi, prosciutto, pasta and mozzarella balls to a big pile of lettuce for an Italian salad everyone will love.
Layer pickled flavors with salty and savory for variety. I start layering on the goodies, like:
-A combo of pickled veggies in DeLallo’s Mild Giardiniera.
-Jarred DeLallo grilled artichoke hearts — my favorite!
-A variety of briny olives including those tasty blue cheese stuffed olives everyone eats first.
-Authentic Italian salamis and salumis for the meat lovers, and of course cheeses too.
Top it with cheese. Chunks of provolone or balls of mozzarella add a creamy bite to the salad, or you can always add chunks of Parmesan for a spunkier bite—and so good when you do!
Dress that salad like you mean it! A simple balsamic dressing served on the side lets everyone sauce their salad the way they like. But my VERY favorite dressing is a simple drizzle of olive oil and DeLallo Modenacrem Balsamic Glaze that’s velvety rich and sweet.
