Insalata Rustica | Rustica Salad

Rustica means rustic in Italian. When I hear the word rustica, I think of a quaint little hole in the wall trattoria off the beaten path that has been family-run for generations and generations with the most outstanding homemade food. I have been lucky enough to stumble upon these restaurants hundreds of times. I remember them all with very fond memories. This wholesome and nutritious salad is a version of a traditional mixed salad that trattoria’s across Italy serve to their patrons. Enjoy with a glass of Centani Falerio.
