Giada De Laurentiis Recipe for Italian Antipasto Salad

Monday's Leftovers: Italian Antipasto Salad

Didn't have time to plan the workweek's meals yesterday? No sweat. There's still an opportunity to pull dinner together with salad that makes the most of your pantry ingredients. Build on a basic lettuce base with chickpeas, tomatoes, cold cuts, and kidney beans left over from last night's burgers.
