What You Need to Make Keto Antipasto Salad

Ingredients to Make Keto Antipasto Salad

  • Cauliflower
  • Salami
  • Roasted red bell peppers
  • Artichoke hearts
  • Mozzarella balls
  • Capers
  • Grape or cherry tomatoes
  • Olives
  • Parsley
  • Red onion
  • Italian seasoning
  • Oil
  • Red wine vinegar

How to Make This Keto Italian Salad

  1. Remove stems and leaves from the cauliflower and give it a quick rinse. Then, cut it up into bite-size pieces.
  2. Prep the other ingredients by chopping them or cutting them into bite-size pieces.
  3. Whisk the dressing ingredients together.
  4. Toss it all together.
  5. Chill and serve!

Chef’s Tips:

  • Every ingredient shines in this recipe, so use the best of the best!
  • Feel free to play around with the ingredients, adding your favorites and removing those you don’t like.
  • This recipe is easily scalable for larger groups.
  • Fresh parsley is essential to give it a light, herbal flavor.
  • Add a touch of fresh garlic or red pepper flakes to the dressing if you want to spice it up a bit.
  • Add some protein! Drained canned tuna, grilled shrimp or chicken would all work fabulously in this dish.

What to Serve With Keto Antipasto Salad

This dish goes fabulously with grilled meats like these Mediterranean-inspired Beef Kabobs or serve alongside a roasted pork tenderloin. Honestly, this dish will go well with any number of meats. Get creative and try something new!

Does This Dish Freeze?

Unfortunately, no, it won’t do well in the freezer. The dishes that freeze the best are the ones with cooked (or blanched veggies) and sauces. Salads with lots of veggies don’t typically freeze well.

How Long Will This Dish Keep?

This is one of those amazing dishes that’ll just get better tasting after you’ve let it sit in the fridge a while. In fact, it is better tasting the day AFTER you make it. I always make it the day before to let the flavors really marry.

That being said, this dish is perfect for keto meal prepping because it’ll keep in the fridge for up to a week without losing quality or you having to worry about it.

  1. I love this salad. It’s very colorful, and quite easy to put together. And I can add even more ingredients to make this into a really filling salad, perfect for lunch time.

  2. 5 stars
    Love cauliflower raw and pickled. This recipe is not pickled but has enough acidity to add great flavor. Used all the ingredients, didn’t omit any… Which is not usually the case. Thanks for sharing!!

    • I’m so glad you liked it! This is, by far, my favorite “bits of this and that” salad! So versatile and delish! You’re right, the acidity really makes it delish! Thanks for stopping by to comment!
