This recipe is from the April 2012 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

In the south of Italy, fresh and preserved vegetables are a staple part of the diet. Neapolitans traditionally eat this salad from Christmas Eve to Epiphany, each day reinforcing it (rinforzo) by adding more ingredients to the bowl. It's the perfect addition to an antipasto spread, and pairs beautifully with cured meats and/or simply cooked seafood.
