Step 4. Enjoy this flavorful masterpiece!

What Else Can I Use?

  • I recommend using the Italian Dry Boar’s Head Salami, as pictured here, but feel free to use your preferred salami variety.

  • While La Scala uses dry mustard for the dressing, Dijon mustard works perfectly and is a pantry staple for most of us. However, if you have dry mustard, use 1 teaspoon.

  • If salami is not your preference, pepperoni can be a great substitute for this salad.

  • Experiment with different types of cheese like Parmesan or Pecorino to add your personal touch.

  • Romaine lettuce can be used instead of or in combination with other lettuces.

  • If you’re looking to add more veggies, roasted red peppers and/or tomatoes complement the flavors beautifully.

  • For a vegetarian twist, omit the salami and enjoy this salad completely meat-free.

  • To give the salad an antipasto twist, add in some olives and artichoke hearts.
