Antipasto Salad

My in-laws were in town this weekend, and I went into cooking mode -- I don't get to cook for them very often, so when they visit, I pull out all the stops!

I made this salad and served it with soup and sandwiches. The recipe comes from the Food Network show "Everyday Italian." I made a few changes to the original. I served the cheese on the side so that everyone else could enjoy it. And since it isn't summer and fresh basil is ridiculously expensive, I used about a cup of fresh flat leaf parsley in the dressing and added a teaspoon of dry basil. I also added a can of artichokes because they're so yummy!
