Summer Antipasto Salad
Our Tuscan Herb brine combines with extra virgin olive oil to make a yummy Italian-style dressing for this elegant side salad. We've kept things simple, but it could easily serve as a main course with your choice of salami, pepperoni, olives, pepperoncini, provolone, chickpeas, and chopped romaine.
Makes 2-3 servings.
1 jar of Eric's Nopales Tuscan Herb
1 pint of cherry tomatoes, sliced in halves
8 oz. of fresh Ciliegine (cherry-sized) mozzarella balls
1 handful of finely chopped curly parsley
2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
Salt & pepper
Whisk together the extra virgin olive oil, 1 tbsp of chopped parsley, and 1 tbsp of Eric's Nopales Tuscan Herb brine. Set aside.
With the help of a strainer, separate nopales from the remaining brine. Combine the nopales, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, and remaining parsley in a large bowl.
Add the dressing and toss until evenly coated. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve room temp or chilled with crostini as an appetizer or side dish.
