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. Toss everything together with a honey-vinegar dressing, and serve alongside a chunk of bread.

If you're hoping to make it a meatless Monday, then simply omit the salami. For the recipe, keep on reading.
