Cuban Anti-Pasto....

Salad will never be the same....

Papa's been busier than ever and the cooking has been left up to me these here is some of my cooking. I think it's as good as papa's...well...maybe not....but it is tasty enough to pass along!
Add some color to your table with this healthy salad that is as versatile and available as the ingridents in your fridge! Easy to make in just a matter of minutes. Use it as a main salad or as an appetizer served alone or with crackers. The best part of this dish is that there are only 5 basic ingridents needed! EVERY THING else is up to you! I've gone ahead and posted the ingridients in the pictured salad as it was made. You can subtract and add any of the ingridients I used here and substitue with the additional ingridents I have listed. Mixing, matching and maybe even adding some of your own favorite ingridients makes this salad easy, quick and versatile enough to never bore of eating or serving it! Also makes a great party salad.
The basic ingridients
2 large tomatoes
1 very large or 2 small green bell peppers
2 medium yellow onions
1/2 cup fresh grated romano or parmesean cheese
1/2 bottle of oz House Italian Dressing (vinegarette style, not creamy!)
The everything else ....
The pictured salad also contains
6 to 8 slices of genoa salami
2 chorizos
1 medium yellow bell pepper
1/2 cup bacon bits
Slice all ingridents into large bite sizes, mix, add in cheese and Italian salad dressing, mix well. Serve immediately or chill and serve later. Serves 8 to 10.
