Love this antipasto tray and use this recipe all the time. I just switch up the items....the dressing all over just adds a perfect tang to everything. Yummy!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
this is in answer to the cook that didn't know what to do with the dressing, I have just watched the show and he drizzles the dressing over the antipasto after he arranged on the plate. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sorry, but I must have missed a chapter. I didn't see Michael make this, and the recipe doesn't say what to do with the vinaigrette once you make it. (It does say "toss to coat," but not WHAT is supposed to be coated.) Can anyone enlighten me, please? I can't imagine adding the vinaigrette to the pickles, for example. Generally, I really like Michael's recipes, but this one has me baffled. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for my husband's birthday party and it was wonderful. I made it my own in a lot of ways, but it was still good and the idea of putting artichoke hearts on a platter as if they were olives was awesome. This is a nice alternate from the boring pre-made deli trays from the store. item not reviewed by moderator and published
