  1. In a large bowl with a lid, stir together the pepperoncini peppers, sweet pepper rings, pimentos, pepperoni, Provolone, Swiss, Cheddar, mushrooms, olives, garlic, oregano, canola oil and olive oil until evenly coated. Cover tightly with the lid and let stand in fridge for 3 days. Shake the bowl often. This can be served cold, but is better when you let it come to room temperature!

Very different and colorful. Slightly tart. Makes a ton! Prep time listed is not accurate as the recipe requires a lot of cubing and slicing. Salad tends to be a bit "heavy", containing a lot of meat and cheese. Too much cheese, I feel. My local deli sells a similar salad, and I've been searching for the recipe. But in comparing the two, I prefer the deli's version. To make it like theirs, next time I'll substitute salami for half of the pepperoni, omit the swiss cheese and add one can of drained garbanzo beans, and add some shredded carrots for extra color. I'll make this again, with the alterations I've stated. Thanks for the recipe! Now I can duplicate my deli's salad!

I immediately had a very bad stomachache that lasted for more than 6 hours after eating this. And it didn't taste that great anyway

I took this concoction and made it into a pasta sald with tri-colored rotini and the addition of red wine vinegar. It was great!

I took this salad to a pot luck today. It was a HUGE hit. Everyone wanted the recipe! Don't change ANYTHING, it is awesome just the way it is. One lady said she put her portion on top of salad and said it was awesome that way too. A great alternative to a lettuce salad especially at a pot luck where lettuce tends to get mushy.

This is a wonderful antipasto-type salad. I made a few minor changes: 1) cut the amount of pepperoni in half, 2) added 1/2 lb of salami, 3) omitted the swiss cheese, 4) added grape tomatoes. I made it 1-1/2 days before serving and it had a wonderful flavor. My husband had 3 helpings at dinner and ate the rest the next day. This is a definite keeper!

This recipe was very heavy and I did not like it as a salad. Although I did not like it, everybody else did. I used the leftovers for a pizza and it was simply AWESOME! I used Boboli prepared crust and pizza sauce. Great use for the leftovers you most likely will have with this recipe.

pretty tasty. Very expensive to make though.

I cut the recipe in half and it still makes quite a bit. This is heavy, but very tasty. My husband and brother-in-law really enjoyed it.
