Pick a variety of flavors, colors and textures:
- sliced cured meats such as prosciutto and soppressata
- hard and soft Italian cheeses
- jarred vegetables like roasted red peppers and olives
- a spread such as chicken liver or roasted garlic
- sliced crusty bread
Keep it Simple
Serve five or six great choices instead of 10 so-so ones.
No Cooking Necessary
Antipasti are room-temperature nibbles designed to prime your appetite – no need to warm or toast anything. Take cheese and meat out of the fridge about an hour before guests arrive.
Forget the fancy platters. Serve everything on a wooden cutting board or pizza peel.
