Antipasto ingredients are sliced and diced to make this substantial salad. I like to buy sliced meat from the deli and chop it all up so you can get a bit of everything in each bite. —Kim Molina, Duarte, California

"My husband loves this. Never knew he was such a fan of garbanzo beans. I added some garlic to the dressing and substitutes Swiss for the Provolone."

"This salad was perfect for a busy night! I prepared everything the day before so that I just had to assemble and eat :) The dressing was so good and light! Definitely a hearty filling salad."

"My son wanted a pizza party for his birthday and I made this salad to go on the side for the adults. So so good. Many compliments, many recipe requests, salad bowl was licked clean. Only difference, instead of mixing dressing ingredients I just used kraft Tuscan House Italian dressing. I measured it out according to ingredients in this recipe and just added a tad more after mixing. Everything else stayed the same."
