This warm antipasto salad is a variation of a salad I eat often. It comes together quickly and is absolutely delicious.

Depending on what time of the year I make this salad, the vegetables I use change. This is my favorite combination of vegetables but feel free to use the vegetables that are in season.

The vegetables along with a little olive oil, salt and black pepper are all you need to make the flavors of the vegetables magically come alive when they roast in the oven.

  • red onion

  • Parmesan cheese

How To Make An Antipasto Salad

  1. Place a cup of arugula and a cup of baby spinach in a large bowl.
  2. I don't really use a seasoned vinaigrette because I find the salad to be flavorful enough with the caramelized roasted vegetables. Instead, pour 1/2 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and 1/2 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar to the lettuce and toss.
  3. When the vegetables have finished roasting, add them while they're still warm to the salad greens and give the salad a gentle toss.
  4. Finally, add thin slices of salami and shaved parmesan and enjoy!

  1. This sounds like such a flavorful salad! I love the simple dressing too — I do the same thing if I’m the only one having a salad, and a lot of times, that’s all you need. 🙂

    This looks like a great salad for lunch! I’ve been eating grilled chicken salads with berries lately but I think I need a change soon. Thanks for the salad idea!
