Salmon Antipasto Salad for Lunch!

Daily Tidbit:  I love Antipasto Salads!  You can throw tons of random things together and create a colorful, filling and delicious meal quickly.  They are great for picnics, but are fun to enjoy at home too.  And it is super easy to load up on Veggies and high Fiber/ high Protein foods like in my lunch today, pictured above, totally filling and totally flavored packed and satisfying.
