easy and quick
As l live quite far from a store, l have to "rearrange" recipes to suit what l have handy .I substituted fresh Red & Green Peppers and the results were great!
Thanks Tamra for a super elegant Salad in this horrid weather it almost made me think of the Carribean!!

I put in some chopped sun-dried tomatoes instead of the fresh ones, added a few capers, and served with toasted bread slices. It was delicious! I think you could play around with flavors and ingredients a lot--cubed salami would be good, as would roasted eggplant.
I would add some sliced pepperoni or chunks of cut up salami. I actually made something similar for dinner last night, with capers instead of olives, a can of diced tomatoes instead of fresh, and cooked broccoli spears, all tossed with whole wheat pasta. I call it "antipasto pasta". It was pretty good, basically antipasto over hot pasta to melt the cheese! Any combo of Italian ingredients would work!
