Instructions

  1. Chop or tear the lettuce into smaller pieces. Distribute it on plates or a large platter. Add the parsley.
  2. Layer the antipasto ingredients on top.
  3. In a mortar or small bowl, add basil, finely chopped chili, and salt. Crush with a wooden spoon or use the mortar and pestle. Sprinkle over salad and drizzle with olive oil.

Tip!

To keep the lettuce crisp, make sure to add the dressing at the time of serving, not beforehand. This salad is based on classic Italian cold cuts but you can always personalize it to your own liking. For example, you can replace ham and salami with tuna or mackerel in tomato sauce. You can also add chicken leftovers, marinated shrimp, or crab meat. For some extra protein, add some boiled eggs.
