When following a low carb diet one of the most common things you hear from people is that they miss bread. I can relate, I love a good crusty Italian loaf filled with all of the meats and veggies I can stuff inside. Especially if it’s soaked in a perfect blend of vinegar and oil then sprinkled with all of the right seasonings.
Unfortunately, that is not allowed on keto or any other low carb diet that I can find. Although I do still hold out hope that one day there will be a diet that requires you to down an entire loaf of bread as often as possible. Until that day happens, I have been forced to experiment with bread free ways to enjoy my favorite Italian subs again, and I think I nailed it with this antipasto salad recipe.
This low carb antipasto salad consists of genoa salami, pepperoni, provolone, mozzarella, tomatoes, pepperoncini’s, green olives, red bell peppers, red onions, monk fruit, olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper, as well as some Italian seasoning.
There is a lot of chopping but it goes by pretty quick because nothing has to be perfect since it will ultimately all be mixed together. I removed the stems of the pepperoncini’s and chopped them up after taking this photo. I just loved the way this antipasto salad looks, it kind of reminded me of a charcuterie board.
I love those things! This mixture of meats, vegetables, and cheeses would look great served on a charcuterie board. You could even mix up the dressing to offer it up as a dip for the rest of the spread.
Making the dressing is pretty simple by whisking olive oil, red wine vinegar, Italian seasoning, monk fruit (click here to see which monk fruit I used) , with some salt, and pepper. I like to take some of the pepperoncini’s and squirt juice into the mix, it adds a nice kick to the dressing.
Then I mix it all up and refrigerate for a few hours before enjoying. I don’t know if it is necessary to let the flavors sit and mix but I do it just in case. Trust me, this low carb antipasto salad is worth the wait!
