Everyone loves a good antipasto platter, but it can be difficult to narrow all those options down to a few items to place on your plate. That's where Antipasto Salad comes in. It combines the things you'd find on an antipasto platter, like salami, pepperoncini, olives, and artichokes, into a salad. Plus, the salad is dressed with a zesty, savory, and slightly sweet homemade Italian dressing that takes the flavor to the next level. Since we used a sugar-free sweetener for the sauce, this salad is also keto-friendly. Serve this antipasto salad on its own or serve it with Garlic Parmesan Asparagus for extra nutrition.
