Italian Antipasti Platter
This Italian antipasti platter is also often referred to as antipasto or antipasta.
Whatever the right way to say it, this is a delicious mix of wonderful Italian flavors.
The recipe below suggests several perfect additions to the platter, but you can certainly add your own ingredients. See the tips box below for more ideas.
Sprinkle everything with salt and pepper.
Serves 6 or can be multiplied up to 4 times.
Great served with long, skinny breadsticks.
Make it Ahead: The platter can be put together a day ahead of time if tightly covered in plastic wrap and refrigerated.Tips:
You can use nearly anything you like in an antipasti platter. Also try:
Antipasto simply means before the pasta, or before the meal, so an appetizer.
This is one of the easiest cold appetizers to make because you don't actually make it at all, just put it together.
The dish is colorful and delicious.
The recipe comes from my favorite entertaining cookbook, The Entertaining Encyclopedia: Essential Tips for Hosting the Perfect Party.
This book is a perfect reference for entertaining, not only full of terrific recipes, but lots of party planning information as well. (Find our full review of the book here.)
