A Very Robust Side Dish Bursting With Flavor

Acquiring A Taste For High Polyphenol Olive Oils

I first made this Vegan Mini Greek Antipasto Salad when I started exploring Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I love real green high polyphenol olive oils and this salad was a great start. It has so much flavor and very medicinal for your good health. Olive oil really mingles herbs and garlic so well. It’s a burst of full flavors in your mouth. A real green olive oil has a peppery taste and one that can be an acquired taste.

After I consumed it a couple of times in Florence Italy I ended up craving it every day I was there. It is served with bread at most restaurants there as soon as you sit down for a meal. Something I look forward to again when we go back to visit.

How To Make Vegan Mini Greek Antipasto Salad

This salad is best when marinated over night or even two nights is best. My Vegan Greek Salad Vinaigrette nicely saturates the red peppers, black olives and onions with tons of flavor. This Mini Greek Antipasto Salad can be very versatile. It can be eaten just as it is or you can add other beautiful tasty antipasto vegetables to it. I make it sometimes on a bed of spinach or I add cucumbers, kalamata olives, slivered carrots, fresh tomatoes, green olives, sun-dried tomatoes, marinated artichokes and vegan cheese chunks. Plus, some extra Vinaigrette to juice it up.

I cook the onions and red peppers slightly because it brings out their flavors in the olive oil and helps soften them. Cooking the onions helps bring down the intensity of the strong taste that can be overwhelming. I transfer them to another plate and use the same oil to lightly cook the red peppers in. I use this oil from the peppers and onions with the vinaigrette to marinate everything in over night. I hope you like this Vegan Mini Greek Antipasto Salad. Enjoy!
