Antipasta salad No veggies!?!?

I have these rotini noodles, italian dressing and cheddar cheese! But my one problem? Not scan of raw veggies and I know those are some of the main ingredients.... Anyone have a good recipe without raw onions, olives cucumbers tomatoes n etc? My friend makes it with all of the above n it tastes great but I always pick it out :( I wonder if it contributes a lot to seasoning...?

I kinda want to toss in a can of tuna.... Mmmm lol

Ok ok ok enough rambling about what I want with no idea how to make it... I need help!

Welcome to DC

You could add the tuna, or salami, cannellini or garbanzo beans, torn fresh basil. I would sub the cheddar for fresh mozzarella.

Welcome to DC

Antipasto usually consists of Italian cured meats, cheeses and marinated or pickled vegetables. So select some of these and mix them with the pasta and dressing. Hth.

Howdy!
Welcome to D.C.!
I must admit to a passion for Antipasto.....Pepperoncini is a great addition. Mt Olive Pickles used to make a product called "Hot Mix" which included cauliflower, carrot slices and other veggies in a spicy vinegar. Sadly, those days are gone.

anything pickled is going to be acidic.

if you have no veggies or just don't like them, just add chunks of or curled up 1/2 slices of whatever deli meats and cheeses that you have on hand, then toss with the dressing and chill for a few hours. the salad, i mean.

you can do whatever you want in the meantime.

Artichoke hearts and roasted red peppers would be great.
