Antipasto Salad Recipe

Antipasto Salad

The word Antipasto literally translates to appetizer. We know this to mean a cold appetizer. Anti means before, and pasto, means meal. The word salad in history meant salt. Now we know it as a cold dish of various chopped ingredients usually containing a leafy green vegetable, though not always the case such as this.

This antipasto salad recipe with the addition of the cheese tortellini is a hearty, robust food that is much more than just an appetizer or accompaniment. Serve with Brushetta, a great way to satisfy those salt cravings.
