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

"Made this for super bowl party. Delicious combination of goodness. Try it!??"

"I've been making something similar, but never thought of the garbanzo beans. Sounds really good. I might toast them a bit first, plus I used shaved Parmesan. If you wanted to cut the calories down, use plain artichokes instead of marinated and use turkey ham, salami and pastrami. I do use plain artichokes and also add chopped hearts of palm. Always serve with a variety of dressings and croutons on the side if desired. Made this many times for around 20-30 people at a buffet dinner. Always eaten up."

"Delicious. I will definitely make this again. I left out the artichokes and olives, because we don't care for either. I'm not a fan of heavy dressings, so this was perfect."

"I really liked this salad and so did the rest of the family. The best part was all of the meat involved. The dressing was a bit bland, but was still light and good. I will be using a different dressing the next time I make it."
