Antipasto Tossed Salad

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. + chilling


16 servings

This is one of the few lettuce salads my husband will eat! Adding lemon juice to bottled dressing is an easy way to give it homemade flair.


  • 1-3/4 cups thinly sliced halved zucchini
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh cauliflowerets
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1 cup reduced-fat Italian salad dressing
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 12 cups torn romaine
  • 2 medium tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • 4 large fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces sliced turkey salami, julienned
  • 4 ounces reduced-fat provolone cheese, julienned
  • 1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
  • 1 cup fat-free Italian croutons
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


  1. In a large bowl, combine the zucchini, cauliflower and onions. Combine the salad dressing and lemon juice; pour over vegetables and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  2. Just before serving, combine the romaine, tomatoes, mushrooms, salami, provolone and olives in a serving bowl. Add marinated vegetables; toss to coat. Top with the croutons and Parmesan cheese.
